  • Free with museum map. Lockers available. The ground floor shows the standard exhibition: very dark, difficult. You get a picture of what Siebold collected, used and with which he is involved. Above an exhibition "the masked Warrior" and that is fascinating. A selection of masks around the samurai, beautiful.

  • Beautiful museum about Dutch doctor Siebold stayed a long time in Japan. Beautiful collected by Siebold collections and beautiful changing contemporary exhibitions inspired by Japan.

  • Beautiful combat clothing, masks etc. views on the exhibition "the masked Warrior. The battle of the samurai ". Items I never had seen before, and perhaps never to be seen again. Impressive! Also, the audio tour is well taken with the to modern times "displaced voice" of Siebold. The museum also has downsides ... 1. The museum shop let m.i. opportunities; lots of interesting books, but the gadgets are few and in it would the museum could be distinguished, especially as also "Japan shops" offer nothing special in Netherlands. 2. the films at the exhibition were unclear and amateurish; who came to the word and why was also unclear. 3. I myself would a room with General films about Japan on price; How live and think the people there now and how they lived before. 4. In the museum is suddenly a art trade/gallery that sells very precious objects; bit vague. 5. Since you your bag etc. in a safe should have, it becomes cumbersome to take down a cup of tea of 0.50 cents. But not regret this visit!

  • Verry great museum nice colection and also verry friendly staff also not to expensive.
  • The museum of Siebold actually contains an interesting collection of far east objects, but the collection is small and the descriptions and explanations are lacky from time to time. The exhibitions on the first floor are most of the time more worth it. But is the total offer of the museum worth it? In my honest opinion it isn't. 3/5
  • Japan museum very nice museum with an audio tour. You can discover the japanese doll
  • It has a very interesting permanent collection and nice seasonal exhibitions. The museum itself used to be a house, so it is a little on the smaller side, but it does give a nice feel to the place.
  • Nice museum. The artist of the current exhibution was there too when I visited. It was pretty nice to be able to talk to her.

Where to stay in Leiden

A relatively small city with a big student population, Leiden caters to both long- and short-stay visitors making their plans on a limited budget. The historical city center remains the most expensive area, offering rooms in charming old buildings turned into elegant hotels. Just a short walk from this area you can choose from inexpensive lodgings in family-run inns, where cozy rooms come with private parking and free Wi-Fi. For added mobility without the extra cost, look for guesthouses that offer free bikes for use around the city.
