The museum for visual arts, history and crafts in Leiden
The city's illustrious past is highlighted in seven collection presentations, including The Cradle of the Golden Age, Leiden University City, The Siege and Relief of Leiden and Seven Centuries of Leids Laken.
Museum Volkenkunde has been collecting the world's cultural heritage since 1837: art treasures that are thousands of years old, statues of Incas and Aztecs, Chinese paintings and African bronzes. But also everyday utensils such as clothes, weapons, eating utensils and children's toys of people for whom survival was the only goal, make the collection special.
