We went to see paintings, but ended up speechless at the beauty and interest of the building itself. The information of local industry and history added greatly to our understanding of this pretty medieval town....Go first so that you may better appreciate it when you walk the cobbles.

This museum is worth a couple of visits, first for its art collection, and second for the history of the building itself.

As soon as we arrived in the entrance everything looked clean and smart. The receptionist was very happy to help and pointed out all of their facilities. The first part of the gallery is based on church related art. And then moving into the next room to the year of what they called the masters. When I was looking such paintings by Rembrandt and Jan Steen etc. It was just amazing at how detailed they were. Then the gallery moves more in the contemporary and modern art. There was a lot of very interesting pieces in the collections.
Overall it was good 2 hours in the gallery. There were only a few downs to the trip. The last collection was locked and we would of liked to have an audio guide.

After reading the reviews on tripadvsior we didn't have high hopes, but as the building looked lovely and we had time, we decided to go in anyway and i must say it was much better than expected, maybe not the paintings of the great Dutch masters that lived in leiden, but still enough to see and discover, we loved the three piece the must.
