This museum has an amazing and beautiful collection of pipes from all over the world. Ben gave a great tour and was very informative. One of the best museums we visited in Amsterdam.

Thanks for your enthusiastic review. Our collection of smoking pipes and its setting in the 17th C. canal house are both remarkable, surprising many of our visitors. Luckily our guides do love the subject and are able to take you on in all stories on...More

Such an interesting museum with an incredible collection of pipes! A gentleman showed me around and gave me the history of the development of pipes throughout different countries and continents.

You are quite right, the (private) collector of the museum collection has always been so selective that he bought only pipes in pristine condition. The quality of the items is one of the points of excellence of the Amsterdam Pipe Museum. We do have a...More

Very great museum with a historical context and facts etc. Easy to access. Quirky and fun idea and it's very informative. Pipe shop at the bottom too!

Fascinating museum with a huge collection of pipes. The people who work here are very friendly and have a huge knowledge on pipes, they helped me with an ancestor who produced them in the 1600s and gave me a lot of information to work with!...More

This is exactly the advantage of this specialized museum: the personal tour for visitors, fitting to their interest. And for the general visitor, our historic canal house and pipe collection is amazing for everyone.

We visited this museum after reading about it in a list of not mainstream attractions in Amsterdam, and we're not disapointed. Very reasonable admission price, with a guided tour. There are only three rooms, but they are packed with pipes, dating back to when people...More

This is a typical reaction of one of those people that don't visit the Pipe Museum, but - as Eleanore wrote - killing time in walking into our shop. I happens more often that - mostly American - people with a lack of civilisation walk...More

You don't have to be a pipe smoker to get fascinated by this amazing little museum since it also gives a broad picture of the cultural context and development of the last couple of centuries. It is absolutely remarkable that one single person during his...More

Thank you for your remarks on our shop, that supports the maintenance of the museum; so it is part of the museum organization. Since we specialize on pipes, we can offer a great choise of tobacco pipes of at least 3.000 shapes and brands. We'd...More
