One of the best if not the best pipe shops in the world with a fantastic collection of antique pipes on display in the museum. Also a decent selection of pipe tobacco. An absolute must visit for the pipe enthusiast, collector, or actually anyone while in Amsterdam. A fabulous experience.

Great tour and amazing collection! It wasn't long after I found myself purchasing a pipe due to the enticing introduction to pipe smoking.

Brilliant - not what I expected! Fantastic amount of pipes from very small to long, very very old and very ornate. A very knowledgable tour was given. 10 out of 10. Visited when in Amsterdam for a few days. Highly recommended for adults and for both the pipe smoker and non pipe smoker. A real hidden gem!

I can't say it's better than the Rijksmuseum, because I haven't been to it yet, but as I said in my title, the Amsterdam Pipe Museum is better, much more interesting, more thorough in its topic, cheaper, etc. than the over-hyped Van Gogh Museum. Don't get me wrong - I like Van Gogh's art, but my point is you will... More

A cute museum with a huge collection of pipes from all around the world. The lady who was our guide and took us around was really kind and informative. If you are nearby, you should spend that 20 mins here.

As a pipe smoker for fifty years, sometimes a tobacconist, and a pipe collector, I have been to a place dedicated to my hobby which has it all.A must do. The two gentlemen were gracious, knowledgable and we purchased our guide's Benedict Goes book, "The Intriguing Design of Tobacco Pipes." While my daughter and I had the tour, my wife... More

We visited this little shop and museum a little early in the day but the curator very kindly gave us a personal tour as we had very little time left in Amsterdam. The pipe collection is really interesting and displayed in the house of the collector. Everything from early 17th century clay pipes to 20th century ceramic and wooden pipes.... More

Thanks Catherine, this is just how many of our visitors experience the museum: not only for the tobacco (and opium) pipes but for the complete experience of the house, the regional changing design, the beauty of craftmanschip. That's the story we like to sharel. More

Great place! Went there with one friend and both men were very polite and kind. One of them took us thru the whole pipe collection they have with all kinds of historic and cultural details about the hundreds of pipes they possess. They also have tons of pipe and smoking material for sale. Recommended

This was a little gem of a museum, run by two lovely gents, one of whom walks you round the amazing collection of pipes dating back thousands of years. He was very knowledgeable and a great guide. The pipes themselves are like works of art, very interesting and only takes approx 15 mins.

Thank Claudia N
