Leiden is the capital city of museums

Leiden has 13 fantastic museums all in walking distance of one another. 
Dinosaur skeletons, masterpieces by Rembrandt and Lievens, Wajang puppets from Indonesia, the medical history of bloodletting and breast prosthetics, an Egyptian temple, treasures from Japan and everything about the relief of Leyden: you will find all of this and more in Leiden's museums.

New: the museum bus in Leiden


Fancy a day at the museum?   

In that case, Leiden is the place to be! Leiden has something for everyone. Within the city centre and the Bio Science Park alone you will find no less than 13 museums. The new OV-museumlijn 10 bus connects these museums, making it possible to combine visits to multiple museums or pop into town for shopping, a boat tour or a city walk.

Never a long wait

The OV-museumlijn runs daily between 10.00 and 17.00 hrs, with departures every 20 minutes. You can find the bus timetable at leiden.nl/ museumbus, or plan your trip door-to-door at arriva.nl, the Arriva-app or 9292.nl.
