The walk around city is very relaxing and beautiful. The museum is interesting o visit if you have a lot of free time as there are many sites that are walking distance. A lot quieter than Amsterdam and I much prefer Leiden

Been in Leiden several times, but in this museum for the first one and was surprised how great it is.
It is 10 rooms which shows you ten different civilizations/continents (from Africa to Oceania).
I was amazed how many good examples of some countries are there and some of them are really rear.
There is also a Buddha room, where you can just sit and relax.
The only negative thing is its cost. Standard ticket costs 14 euro. For students they have discount and the ticket costs 6 euros.
I highly recommend this museum. Everyone will get something from it and you will be surprised, when realised that already spend here two hours

I visited all the sections at the museum and I was amazed with the details and the amount of information. Also, the areas offer some interactive panels where you can read more about the pieces in Exibition. The area dedicated to Skandinavia was the one I most liked. Full of details and enriched with ornaments and pieces.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
This is a must place to be visited in Leiden.

The museum shows many special peoples from various regions with their particular and traditional habits. These are shows by means of often very rare and beautiful objects, but also in presentations by photos or slides or films.
The museum is very suitable for children also, teaching them respect for things that we often see as of lower value, mistakenly.
