Owner description: Museum Volkenkunde is a museum about people housed in a historic building just five minutes' walk from Leiden's central station. A huge totem pole greets visitors as they enter the museum through the garden. Museum Volkenkunde presents regularly changing exhibitions and its permanent display features objects from eight different cultural regions. Objects that all have a story to tell about humankind.

This is a large, modern museum with lots of things to see. They have exhibits from all over the world, grouped by location in the world. There are good explanations in English of the exhibits. You could spend a long time in here learning about many cultures. This certainly exceeded my expectations. And it's covered by the museumkaart.

Beautiful displays and very good commentary on most of the objects in a touch screen format that allows you to pursue as much or as little information as you like.

Fantastic collection, really well interpreted and an excellent cafe as well. Some brilliant films and stills in the galleries giving a vivid insight into life in different communities around the world. Could have spent a whole day there
