dutch costume museum

There is a small charming new museum in Amsterdam in one of the old canal houses of the Herengracht.Have a look when you are in town.

It is all about the dutch folk dress. The museum has seven rooms and  each one of them is dedicated to the traditional costumes of an area or town in the Netherlands. My favorite dress comes from Staphorst. These photographs are from the Staphorst room.
