Light your pipe
19 December 2012
Under this name the Pijpenkabinet joins the Amsterdam Light Festival that lightens up our city this winter. Our museum has its own interpretation of the word light by using it in the sense of lighting a pipe. The museum shows the antique instruments that are at the base of light and fire. In two show- windows you can see fire-pans, braziers, tongues and tinder pistols, tinder boxes, but also pyrogenic instruments. Of course we also show the modern lighter. From December 19, 2013 until February14 2013 the exhibition Light your pipe can be seen.
