Exhibition on snuff tobacco
27 August 2016
The fall exhibition of the Amsterdam Pipe Museum is dedicated to smokeless tobacco or snuff. A series of snuffboxes, from simple to very luxurious, comes from our own reserves. Really sensational are the fine snuff rasps, used by the rich in the 18th century to grate tobacco into snuff powder. The wooden or ivory holder is finely carved with elegant scenes. This time the museum offers its visitors the ultimate snuff experience: you can take snuff yourself! How sensational, you leave the museum with a tickling nose.
