Description

The Amsterdam Pipe Museum is a museum in Amsterdam with a collection of smoking pipes and tobacco-related paraphernalia. The museum gives an overview of smoking in five continents, manufactured between 500 before Christus and the present. The permanent exhibition of the Amsterdam Pipe Museum displays over 2,000 objects of a wide variety of pipes and accessories covering 25 centuries.

History
The Amsterdam Pipe Museum started as a private collection in 1969. Between 1975 and 1982 the collection was exhibited in an art and antique center at the Frederiksplein in Amsterdam. The collection was mainly  focused on the well-known Dutch clay pipe. In 1982 the museum moved to Leiden, where it functioned as a public museum until 1995. The collection was greatly expanded during that time with historical and ethnographic objects. In 1995 the museum moved to Amsterdam again and is now on it’s current location at the Prinsengracht 488, between the Leidseplein and the Rijksmuseum.

Collection
The museum collection is constantly growing since its establishment. In 2014 the collection has more than 30,000 objects. A representative part is on permanent display in the windows of the museum.
