Being a pipe smoker myself this was certainly a "must see" in Amsterdam for me. Interesting not only for pipe smokers as the pipes reflect parts of the history as well. Very nice experience with very friendly and helpful employees. Enjoyed the visit very much.More

Fine that you enjoyed your visit. Good to add that we have for the pipe smokers a nice shop at the entrance of the museum, that offers a huge range of modern pipes, made by all major and artisan pipe makers across Europe. The choice...More
This small museum which is dedicated to pipes is small but very interesting. As nothing is labelled each visitor is given a short-guided tour of the exhibits, together with a history of pipe smoking. The guide was very knowledgeable, and we enjoyed our visit.
This museum is a gem! The pipe collection is from a life long pipe collector in his own house, donated after his passing. The artwork and unique pieces are an interesting history lesson, especially when shared by the dedicated and engaging interpreters at this site....More

No-one can, since tobacco pipes are becoming rare in the streets these days. Quite different from the old days, when men really expressed themselves with the choise of pipe: impressing, decorated or simple and just adequate. All these, over a time span of 2,500 years...More

You are quite right, besides the museum section with 2,500 pipes from all over the world, we have an extensive offer of old and new smoking pipes in our museum shop. Both the regular briar pipes (in wood) and - our speciality - ceramic pipes...More
Charming little place with a collection of pipes from various parts of the world. Without a guided tour (which you get for the ticket price) it would be a very short stop here. However, with the story behind it, it gets very interesting. You can...More
We arrived not knowing what to expect but found a fantastic collection of pipes and were given a wonderfully interesting private tour. Our guide had extensive knowledge of the history of pipes, answered all our questions and was very friendly. The museum is in a...More

Thanks for the compliment. In fact, the Rijksmuseum is only 450 meters away; more of the thousands of visitors in the Rijksmuseum should come over and visit us.
The private collection of pipes is impressive, but it's only worth seeing if you want to fill an hour or so and have the "I Amsterdam" card; it was not worth the $10 Euros to see the private collection, nor to make it a destination...More
If you're interested in the history of pipes, this is the place to go. For a nominal fee, you get a personal tour of the pipes (really cannot browse and learn anything as there is no signage). And they have a nice selection of pipes...More

Sure, our museum shop has an amazing offer on pipes, both modern ones in briar, meerschaum or ceramic (a Dutch speciality) and antiquities in the field of smoking and tobacco. You'll be amazed to see our store.
