At the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden in Leiden presently there is an exhibition: Romans along the Rhine, on display from 1 June 2020 to 28 February 2021.

This exhibition is about life in Roman times along the Rhine river which was the border of the Roman territory in the Netherlands.  Part of the show is a wide selection of glassware from the Museum collection and the private collection of  Nico F. Bijnsdorp
