Interesting but smaller than thought

I expected more, but all in all it is an very good museum for an short trip, especially for bag lovers. I went there with my girlfriend, so it was interesting , but we expected a bit more. More bags or more interaction for example. It is really just showcases with different bags, sorted chronic and you get some audio from a audio guide to the bags. But this is just a very little critic, all in all it was really interesting but it's an museum where you go once and that it was. It's also just 60-90 minutes, so it is an short trip to the story of bags and very nice for a day in Amsterdam, when you want to go to an museum, but don't be there for many hours or your whole day. We went there in the morning and had the rest of the day left for other exciting activities there.
