As the windows and doors are opened literally and figuratively, the Museum of Bags Amsterdam has more connection with the City of Amsterdam, its residents and visitors. The museum will therefore remain open during the renovation. In addition to the permanent presentation of the 16th / 19th century, the presentation of the 20th / 21st century can be admired at a different location in the House, in a different form. From the archive a selection of more than 100 bags is shown, each of which has a special character and together form an inspiring family.
In addition, from 30 October to 1 December, the Museum of Bags Amsterdam offers in collaboration with Current Obsession – a jewellery magazine and platform that is appreciated for its experimental approach and unconventional style – space for artist Simon Marsiglia, who combines sculpture, jewellery and fashion in his work. The exhibition Everything but the bag takes place during the biennial jewellery festival Obsessed! that takes place in November in various cities in the Netherlands.
From December 12, 2019, a magical selection of suitcases from Louis Vuitton and Goyard, among others, can be admired during the new Trunk Show exhibition in the Museum of Bags Amsterdam.
See On Sunday, November 3 and Monday, November 4, 2019, the museum will be closed due to construction work. Because of the renovation, Museumnacht Amsterdam will not participate on Saturday night November 2 either.
