Gold dust

Magical gold, mysterious gold, shiny gold, sparkling gold – the right colour to make your Christmas home extra festive this year. The Wunderkammer will share their love for golden decorations with you in this year’s winter edition, Shop for a Week ‘ Gold dust”.

As long as humans know of the existence of gold, it has attracted and fascinated many of us. We will show a collection of gold dusted flowers, golden glazed ceramics and metallized glass.

Think of a store filled to the brim with little, large and lavish present to spoil yourself or loved ones. Enter a treasure trove and be enchanted by nature’s beauty enhanced with gold dust.

This 19th edition, the Shop for a Week is open for twenty four days and takes place at the monumental Cromhouthuis. Simultaneously the museum hosts the exhibition ‘Gold! Watches and Jewellery collected by Sophia Lopez Suasso’, that features 130 exquisite items once owned by a unique collector in Amsterdam: Sophia Lopez Suasso-de Bruijn (1816-1890).

Open: Tuesday – Sunday from 11:00 – 17:00 (Closed on Mondays)
