It’s easy to find and close to everything else you may want to explore. All of Escher's work is amazing and a variety of his work is on display. There’s also an interactive monitor to view Escher’s work from the beginning to the end of his life. The shop is brilliant too with popular Escher prints for sale and other art merchandise & jewellery. Well worth a visit, enjoy!

Attached to the University, it has been collecting samples of vegetation from every place in the world for hundreds of years. Well maintained gardens and hot houses, available for local public to find relaxation and sunshine.. I will go there every time I visit Leiden.

Very nice experience. Lovely walk between the different aquariums. Walk through the tunnel under the larger fish such as turtles and rays. For themselves the piranhas. Watch the penguins and otters being fed.

Really nice museum to get stunned by the works of Escher. All this at the background of a former palace, with everything from the ceiling to the floor having something to look at.

Really cool museum! Buying tickets online was a great idea — seamless experience
