Create an itinerary including Naturalis Biodiversity Center
Explore the extensive collection at Naturalis Biodiversity Center, a family-friendly institution with lots to offer visitors of all ages. Examine insects, fossils, rocks and minerals, gemstones, and much more in the collection of about 37 million specimens. Detailed explanations accompany each exhibit, but opt for hiring a tour guide if you really want to get the full experience. Children will enjoy up-close demonstrations about science and nature, as well as interactive displays. Before you leave, check out the workshops, where you can participate in hands-on learning. Plan my Leiden trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Stunning architecture, nearly uncountable expositions. Not loud, info tables around, interesting exhibition parts. We've been there for about four hours and they went by like seconds. Kids have been fascinated by the dinosaurs and the death part. Would highly recommend a visit for families
  • There are no words to describe the awesomeness degree of this place: it represents with no doubts a tribute to nature, science and research. I am very glad I had the chance to speak to the triceratops and micromammal/Island evolution experts: amazing people, truly passionate about their job. It was inspirational!! The shop is filled with portable wonders and the available books are gorgeous: a pity that the volumes are only available in Dutch! Thank you all for your hard work!! 💚
