  • Visited this museum which has pretty close to the train station and by the canal and has interesting exhibits. Worth a visit.

  • One of my all time favorite museums in The Netherlands. Been here several times (before covid) Love the things on display and learning about different cultures.

  • Went to this Museum with my wife and loved it. Very nice special exhibition on Aztecs, and the regular exhibition on various cultures around the world was so nicely done and explained. Bravo! Afterwards took a stroll through the old centre of Leiden. Parking at walking distance very convenient.
  • Superb exhibitions in terms of objects, lighting, textual representations, explanation, spatiousness in display, etc. As a mild criticism, the technical level of civilizations could receive some additional expert specification and analysis, connecting more strongly to the present time. That is, spice exhibitions with some relevant STEM.
