Dutch National Pipe Museum taking over the closed NiemeyerTobacco Museum
Wednesday, July 6, 2011
The Pijpenkabinet Museum in Amsterdam has been able to acquire the core of the Niemeyer Tobacco Museum that closed earlier this year. By doing so we guaranteed that the most important part of this old corporate collection will be preserved and presented in a Dutch museum. As you might know, even in Holland several museums closed over the past years: The Pipe Room of Douwe Egberts, the Cigar Museum in Kampen, the famous ‘Moriaan’ pipe museum in Gouda and most recently Niemeyer Tobacco Museum. Since we assembled parts of all these collections, the Pijpenkabinet is now even more rightfully the national museum on pipes and tobacco.
