  • 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.

  • This museum of ethnology, located within walking distance from the Leiden central station, is so breathtaking that one finds it rather difficult to choose where to start! My advice is: take your time and walk through all the exhibits....and read the fascinating stories behind them. Come to Leiden and visit this magnificent museum! Highly recommended.
  • Very interesting museum, a sort of smaller version of the British Museum ;) the Aztec exposition currently showed is beautiful. The park around the museum is also nice for a stroll, the museum is very central and just across the canal is a big parking lot
