Who knew there was even such a thing as a bag and purse museum? I certainly didn’t! This particular one even has a special exhibition on royal bags, which even includes some historical women such as Empress Elisabeth of Austria and Queens Wilhelmina and Juliana. The exhibition itself is rather small, but the museum itself has two more floors with special bags.
I do apologise for the quality of the pictures. The lighting was rather poor, and I did not have my Canon with me.
The Royal Bags Exhibition is now at the Tassenmuseum Hendrikje in Amsterdam until 26 February 2017.
Thank you very much for the article. I never knew about the bags and it was interesting to see pictures of them. Very beautiful. Wish I could see them in person.
Thank you for sharing your photos of the exquisite handbags carried by these beautiful and courageous women. It’s all very interesting and gives one a true sense of historical power.
