  • From Amsterdam to stop off on the way back to the Mauritshuis, stopped by. Goods in Japan at that time the Siebold collection is a small museum and art, there was spectacular. It is one of the candidates here only when the destination rather than if you have time I want to see us.

  • In the museum is clear where the name comes from and what Siebold did. That is shown by means of a fun movie. The items that are shown and collected by Siebold are fun but not really special in my eyes. Particular the temporary exhibitions can and that made the visit worthwhile. Look for yourself here on the site for this exhibitions.

  • Japan museum Siebold House is a museum at the rapenburg in Leiden where objects are shown that Philipp Franz von Siebold (1796-1866) between 1823 and 1829 has collected during his stay at Deshima, the Dutch trading settlement at Nagasaki in Japan. It also acts as a museum of Japanese culture. The exhibition about Siebold occupies 2 rooms. Very friendly and tastefully decorated. t/m 27 November they have two temporary exhibitions: struggle for power. PRINTS of TAKEDA HIDEO and ARITA. PAINTINGS by DEBORA M the series artwork in the exhibition ' struggle for power ', brings the story of the Genpei War. This war (1180-1185) was a conflict at the end of the Heian-period between the Taira and Minamoto families. Through the use of eroticism and a graphical style Takeda's work gives a contemporary look at the old fight. All the particular style, beautiful to look at, it is further away from you, but gives insight into a different time and culture. This year they celebrate that the porcelain industry in Arita 400 years. The elaborately decorated Japanese porcelain from the Edo period (1603-1868) that via VOC ships came to Netherlands, forms the inspiration for the series of paintings that Debora M (1972) commissioned by Japan museum Sieboldhuis for this exhibition. I was very surprised by these paintings! So very beautiful and true to life, the light, it seems they are from the cloth splashes. Well worth going to see.

  • Lovely little museum in the centre of Leiden. All kind of objects collected by Philipp Franz von Siebold during his trips to Japan are put on display. But what perhaps makes this museum interesting are the temporary exhibitions, so better to check in advance which ones are currently up. The one on the Japanese printmakers was especially enjoyable.
  • 小别墅不算大,布置有巧思。收集的物品精致有趣。展馆内设语音讲解。楼上定期有不同的特别展,可以事先网上了解主题。
  • I found the museum quite small for the requested entrance fee of 8 €.

  • If you are interested in the band between Leiden and Japan or Japan, then you here a while sweet. If that is not really your thing and you are here just to look, then you're soon ready. It is, after all, a residential home. We thought it was worth a visit! The store offers a large amount of books with many subjects.
