A Reception in the Centre of Amsterdam

The period rooms of the Museum of Bags and Purses are a wonderful location for a reception or party to celebrate a special occasion, such as a graduation, jubilee or wedding anniversary. The authentically restored 17th and 18th century rooms are unique, even within Amsterdam’s generally well-preserved canal circle and will add a touch of style to any party, reception or network event.

An Elegant Party or Reception

Both the Small and the Large Period Room of the Museum of Bags and Purses are perfect for receiving guests. The Large Period Room is an elegantly decorated room with a lovely chimney piece and an impressive painted ceiling and can accommodate up to 80 people. The equally beautiful but more intimate Small Period Room is best suited for smaller parties of up to 40 persons.
