A must to see, even the kids finds it fascinating.Well displayed and documented, get the brosure at the end of every row, as all the items on display are numbered, it makes it easier to understand

The museum is more for science fans - lots of in-depth info on medical history and potential future developments, with case studies, in English and Dutch which anyone studying medicine/ biology would love. Plenty of exhibits suitable for children including a massive lab set-up with all kinds of mini-experiments and the like. For those like myself who aren't as interested... More

I visited this museum with my almost 5 year old son. We had an hour of fun and exploring. He was still a bit to young to enjoy the museum fully. For a lot of stuff you have to read. He can't read yet and it took to long for him that I first read it and than he could... More

I spent a long afternoon here, there is far more to see and do than I expected. Entrance to the museum is covered by the Museumkart. The first room in the museum is the Bleuland Cabinet and houses all sorts of skeletons, body parts and unusual items in glass jars. Next on the corridor is the Knowledge Lab. Upstairs, there...

Walking around Utrecht with our visitor from the US, we walked pass the museum and decided to have a look. The man at the ticket counter was very kind, even went along to show us one their prized pieces: an authentic microscope by Anthony van Leeuwenhoek. As a retired doctor having used the modern day microscope, it hardly seems recognizable,... More

Near the centre of Utrecht, 5 min from the Dom Tower, lies the University Museum. It includes the Oude Hortus/Botanical Garden; the Bleuland Cabinet - a room full of medical curiosities; the 'Knowledge Lab' - an interactive science area and the 'Collection of Curiosities' - a sort of natural history museum, focusing on the unusual. Mon-Sun, 11-5. The Museum Cafe... More

Like almost every Dutch museum the university museum is free with museumjaarkaart . Most people come to enjoy the tranquillity of the former botanical gardens now a peauceful university park. A good alternative to the suburban modern hortus east of the city at UITHOF. The small museum upstairs is yust an added bonus to most visitors.
