Premiere on YouTube
17 March 2021
Intern Jesse launched the first short film on YouTube today. Doing so, our museum is making a start in a new domain. We were already strong in providing visual material, but from now on the museum will also present itself in moving images. This first video is the start of a series in which the Amsterdam Pipe Museum will primarily appeal to young people. The first subject chosen is the introduction of the characteristic Japanese tobacco pipe, the kiseru with its small metal pipe bowl and bamboo stem. With such short videos, we hope to draw more attention to the subject of pipe smoking, both in a historical perspective and on current affairs.
