Tassenmuseum Hendrikje information
At this handbag museum you'll find half a millennium's worth of arm candy. The largest collection in the Western world (over 5000 bags), it contains everything from a crumpled 16th-century pouch to dainty art deco and design classics by Chanel, Gucci and Versace to Madonna's ivy-strewn 'Evita' bag from the film premiere and an ’80s touch-tone phone bag.
