Pijpenkabinet (Pipe Cabinet)
Pijpenkabinet (Pipe Cabinet) Review
Considering Amsterdam's rich history of tobacco trading and its population's long tradition of rolling their own "shag," there should actually be a much larger museum dedicated to this subject. Perhaps this museum could relate such local facts as how urine-soaked tobacco was hailed as an aphrodisiac in the 16th century, or how "tobacco-smoke enema applicators" were used until the mid-19th century in attempts to revive those found unconscious in the canals, and how Golden Age painters employed tobacco and its smoke as a metaphor for the fleeting nature of life. But as things stand, there is only this collection of more than 20,000 pipe-related items. You might also want to check out the library or buy a pipe in the Smokiana shop.
