Dutch National Museum of Antiquities
The museum was founded by King William I in 1818, and manages collections of archaeological artifacts from cultures that have been pivotal for the development of today’s civilization. Besides the Dutch archaeology you discover stunning objects from Egypt, the Romans and ancient Greece.
Quest for Kids
Not only are the exhibitions in the museum a feast for the eyes, the building it is situated in is well worth a visit in itself. The museum is located in an old mansion and almshouse, a monumental building in Leiden. If you visit with children, they can enjoy a fun quest through the museum.
