  • A very fun and educational museum in the Centre of leiden. Highly recommended for people who like math and science. Also for children there is a very fun math route to do, where you have a suitcase to investigate and answer the questions given. Really nice.

  • Interest in math and science, then this museum is a unique experience. Question to the desk a maths case. They have there in two levels. In the case you have all the amenities for several hours search and counting device. You have several cases need? Best in advance. The museum also has a nice shop.

  • Note: Museum is closed for major renovation until early 2017. Information is on their website, but not on Google Maps. Go to their website to see when they will be reopening. It is a very good museum when it is open to the public.
  • If you have any interest in science this place is a must visit when you are in Leiden. The permanent collection includes a replica of an anatomical theatre that explains the history of science as well. Also at what other museum can you see three actual Nobel prizes and the equipment the scientists worked with when they won it.
  • A lot of science shown in a neat way
  • For the love of science. Located in the town in which modern science started.
  • Museum Boarhaave is quite an interesting museum for those with technical and medical interests. They have a large collection of instruments and some instruments can be experimented with, which makes it more interesting for kids. I would not recommend it to those faint of heart since they do have real skeletons, babies in formaldehyde and such
