Items from the Allard Pierson Museum have now been added to Dutch Museum Gift Shop. The museum, that houses the historical collection of the University of Amsterdam, is the 10th museum to join this online initiative. Dutch Museum Gift Shop aims to provide Dutch museums with a new stream of income during and after the pandemic-induced lockdowns.
The Allard Pierson Museum boasts an impressive collection that spans 10,000 years of cultural history from The Netherlands and abroad. The collection covers around areas as varied as archaeology, the history of books, Jewish culture, church history, cartography, literature, graphic design and zoology.
The museum kicks off its addition to Dutch Museum Gift Shop with a selection of beautiful botanical prints by Maria Sibylla Merian and Maria Moninckx, two fascinating female illustrators from the 17th century. More products will be added in the following weeks.
