Create an itinerary including Naturalis Biodiversity Center
Explore the extensive collection at Naturalis Biodiversity Center, a family-friendly institution with lots to offer visitors of all ages. Examine insects, fossils, rocks and minerals, gemstones, and much more in the collection of about 37 million specimens. Detailed explanations accompany each exhibit, but opt for hiring a tour guide if you really want to get the full experience. Children will enjoy up-close demonstrations about science and nature, as well as interactive displays. Before you leave, check out the workshops, where you can participate in hands-on learning. Plan my Leiden trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Splendid museum with wonderful exhibits curated for people of all ages. Explanatory signs in many of the exhibits are very well done, and interactive activities for kids are well received. Great for introducing kids to biodiversity and for adults to appreciate the wonders of the natural world.
  • Amazing museum with something for everyone. Loved the dinosaur exhibition and all the interactive things that are on offer. It was getting quite busy, but if you prefer less people around, it seems to be better early in the morning.
