Leiden Museum of Ethnology
Folk art and high art: Indonesia, Japan, Inuit, Pacific, and more
Join me for a visit to a treasure house full of world cultures and a diversity in world peoples, tribes and ancient cultures, represented through objects, models, sculpture, dress, tools etcetera. This museum has re-opend. Please book a time slot ticket for yourself and for the guide. New: Private Audio system available.
Strong collection in Japanese culture with miniature models of housing, fine Buddhist sculpture, extensive presentation of Inuit (eskimo) culture and much more. A museum for the entire family. Comparable to an exciting treasure hunt in grandma’s attic.
For Japanese Culture there is also an outstanding specialised museum within a 5 minute walk.
We can combine this museum with a great city walk in Leiden.
Tour by professional Art History Scholar with excellent teaching skills. Specialist in Art & World Cultures

HOW TO GET THERE
Leiden is easy to reach with public transport, by train in half an hour. I hold a Dutch Railways rebate card. For this train tour I can offer you a special rebate of 40% for three separate adult railway tickets. This makes it economical for you as clients. I can join you from your hotel or from the Amsterdam train station.
Various other options are open to you: a) You can hire a car and drive it yourself, and I will join you starting in Amsterdam and will advise you about the best route. b) We can hire a professional taxibus service at around E 70 per hour for about 4 to 5 hours. On top of that you will pay me as the specialist guide. This is the more expensive option.
