Museum visits § 3

Group visits

A museum as the Amsterdam Pipe Museum, with its valuable materials and antique furnishing, requires visits on guided tours. These tours introduce you in the passion of the collector and the richness of the collections. At the same time a rare opportunity is given to take a look inside one of the typical Amsterdam canal houses in all its original charm.

The best and most intimate way to visit the museum is when groups from four to fifteen persons visit the museum by appointment. Then you will have a tailor made show round including a drink. Next to the fabulous collections, the visit to an Amsterdam canal house is an experience by itself.

During the tour themes such as folk art, archaeology, African smoking habits or opium taking provides sufficient information for a versatile programme. The lecturer who has a torough knowledge about the subject is able to answer every imaginable question on the field of smoking and pipes in general. The interaction between the visitors and the knowledgeable guide guarantee the ultimate interactive museum visit.

Not only historical societies and archaeological circles, but also students, ladies programs etc. highly appreciate such a visit. It is even possible to arrive by boat in front of the door. On special request also tobacco can be tasted in pipes from the museum shop. The combination of a canal house and private museum visit is the ideal way for companies to recieve their guests and relations. Visits are possible during the normal opening hours but also in the morning and during the evenings. For guided tours the normal entrance price is charged, without extras. Coffee, tea or others will be served at cost price base.

Phone the museum for information on these special arrangements.
