Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden

#4 of 14 in Museums in Leiden
Natural History Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
Explore the extensive collection at Naturalis Biodiversity Center, a family-friendly institution with lots to offer visitors of all ages. Examine insects, fossils, rocks and minerals, gemstones, and much more in the collection of about 37 million specimens. Detailed explanations accompany each exhibit, but opt for hiring a tour guide if you really want to get the full experience. Children will enjoy up-close demonstrations about science and nature, as well as interactive displays. Before you leave, check out the workshops, where you can participate in hands-on learning. Plan my Leiden trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
