Museum De Lakenhal
It's compulsory to book a time slot for your visit in advance.
Museum De Lakenhal is the museum for fine art, history and crafts from the city of Leiden. The city's illustrious past is highlighted in seven collection presentations, including ‘The Cradle of the Golden Age', 'Leiden University Town', 'The Siege and Relief of Leiden' and 'Seven Centuries of Leiden Cloth'. The internationally renowned collection contains numerous highlights such as 'The Last Judgement' (1526-27) by Lucas van Leydens, beautiful stained glass, and paintings by Rembrandt and his contemporaries. Since 1874, the museum has been located in a historic 17th century inspection hall for woollen fabrics, which was carefully restored between 2017-2019 and expanded with modern architecture. The special interaction between past and present that takes place here makes Museum De Lakenhal a source of inspiration for everyone.
