Our outpost in Arnhem
5 May 2014
Ever since 2004 the Amsterdam Pipe Museum has a permanent exhibition in the Dutch Open Air Museum in Arnhem, we could even call it our annex or outpost. It is a special exhibit with its own atmosphere. It shows a worldwide overview of tobacco pipes in the unexpected ambiance of a post-modern gentlemen’s room. Visitors with some time can sit down in a comfortable Chesterfield sofa and watch a video on a 1950’s television set. Our curator tells why he has chosen these particular objects from the museum’s rich collection for this special exhibition. The presentation "Spaarstation Dingenliefde" (Tram station ‘Love for Objects’) will be on view in Arnhem for the coming years. If you have seen it, please let us know!
