Historic Pipes & Pipe Museums

  • PipePortal.eu, past and present of smoking - this website offers an overview of several museums on pipes & tobacco, including a part of their collection online. A unique feature of this site is that one can make a selection out of all museum collections at the same time, so eg. a choice of meerschaum pipes of five different museums.
  • Pipemuseum.nl - this is the site of the Amsterdam Pipe Museum, currently the most extensive public pipe collection in the world. This site holds not only information on the history and background of this private foundation, but gives access to the full collection of over 35.000 objects in a huge collection database holding 180.000 unique photographs of the pipes and all paraphernalia.
