    This is one of the best museums about Japanese history in Europe! The exhibition is mainly about Siebold, and the treasures he has taken from Japan. There are regular fun exhibitions and activities, which with Japanese culture (traditional and modern), history, and cuisine. Definitely recommended for Japan lovers!

    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

    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.

    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.

    A small museum with a lot of interesting articles of Japanese culture during the period when they shut them selves out from the rest of the world. Only downside is the fact it is so small

    A rather small museum, but the atmosphere and collection most certainly makes up for it

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.
