We went on a Hadassah charity excursion expecting to meet Mrs Leiber. If you are a fan of her handbags stop and see it if time permits.You probably should leave the hubby at home.

This was the first time visiting this museum. The men on our trip hated it. However, the women found it very interesting.

I have visited this little museum on more than one occasion, and find the collection of small glittering purses to be both interesting and enjoyable. It is a good place to bring guests, when looking for something to do during their Hamptons' visit.

A private museum buried off Old Stone Highway that has many of the stunning handbags done by Judith Leiber over the years. Open Saturdays in season - call or look on the Internet to see if they are open., If you are lucky, Judith and her husband Gerson, both in their 90s will be there to talk to you. The... More

You'll be surprised that the collection is mostly magnificent leather (not crystal) bags with fantastic details. Housed in a European inspired structure and garden.

Although you need to schedule a visit in advance , handbags collection and Jackson Pollack art studio,can go together. Try to see both when you go to East Hampton. Always call first and coordinate.
