Wonderful to see in Museum Boerhaave that what we took for granted during lessons in physics concerning gravity, optics, mechanics and many more, was subject of scientific research and testing just a few centuries ago.

A very nice collection with a very interesting and intriguing theater where you can even see several skeletons in the way it was in the old days. I missed good explanation of the things in the museum. There were a lot of artifacts but it was nog Always clear what they used to do with them. Also there were several artifacts temporary missing. I think a bit too many...
Temperature was very high in some parts of the museum.

This museum shows the history of science and medicine. Whereas not everything will be of interest to children, there are usually some great exhibitions and workshops especially for kids.

I had the impression this was going to be a small museum, but it is in fact quite large. Quite interesting to see all the medical instruments. I was not so keen on the astronomical part, but it's very good if that is your thing. I would not go out of my way to fit it in, but it's very good if you have nothing to do on a rainy day!

This lovely old building was a former hospital and now houses some wonderful exhibits of science, medicine, physics, chemistry and more.
So many great collections and it's fun for the kids as well with the interactive displays.
This is a real part of old Leiden.
