  • Interesting collection of fossils, minerals, scientific instruments and paintings. Yet, it all looks outdated and could use more explanatory information in the areas with the fossils, minerals and instruments. It is kind of disappointing if you do not know what you are exactly looking at.
  • Nice for the atmosphere, cool exposition and great art gallery. Go if you're interested in the history of science. The actual science is a bit outdated.
  • Beautiful museum with a great collection. There is are quests available for children, they loved it! The museum is withing walking distance from the station and located in a gorgeous building.
  • One of the best museums in Holland! It's got a very nice painting collection and amazing archeological exhibitions. recommend!
  • Beter dan Rijks!
