End of anniversary year
1 October 2020
When we reached the milestone of our 50th anniversary on October 1, 2019, we were full of energy to make it a real festive year. Memorize what we have achieved in half a century in terms of the expanding collection, unexpected research, the beautiful museum. And repeatedly giving press impulses to put the Amsterdam Pipe Museum better on the map. Unfortunately, all those plans were disrupted by Covid-19. Fifty weeks later, only the diaries that Don Duco wrote as mementos of memorable feats of arms will still recall the festive year. All public activities were canceled due to Covid restrictions. Our museum has to wait with the other Dutch museums for new opportunities once the virus has passed away. Only then a normal way of life will give room for culture again. So please be patient.
