We spent about 3 hours there, and could easily have stayed longer (we left at closing time). The anatomical theatre is beautiful and the introductory video is quite entertaining. Lots of science to explore, with many interactive displays to keep children (and adults!) entertained.

This is a good museum, especially for regionally specific history. My favourite section was the African section, specifically the history of afro-beat music.

The new Boerhaave museum has become better after the renovation. More interaction, more interactive, more lively. Still the explanations are to difficult for a lot of people.

If you are in Leiden, visit this museum. It looks great, has a lot of interesting topics covered, complete with audio fragments and test setups. Make sure you have enough time though, if you want to explore everything!
