Museum of Bags and Purses closed
27 April 2020
The first museum to fall victim to the Corona crisis is the popular Museum of Bags and Purses on the Herengracht in Amsterdam. Today it was announced that this special theme museum will close for good. We cherish pleasant memories of this museum, where objects from our collection were on loan numerous times. It is sad that such a special initiative ends up failing because of something so banal as money, not because of a lack of interest! The Dutch Museum Association gave a warning that more museums will have to close down this year.
