Museum De Lakenhal

Museum De Lakenhal wants to have as many different people as possible to look at Leiden's past. In the beautifully restored museum complex, a rich selection from the collection of visual arts, crafts and history can be seen on the basis of seven core stories.

Museum De Lakenhal is the museum for visual art, history and crafts in the city of Leiden. The city's past is highlighted in seven collection presentations, including The Cradle of the Golden Age, Leiden University City, The Siege and Relief of Leiden and Seven Centuries of Leids Laken. The internationally renowned collection contains numerous highlights such as Lucas van Leyden's 'Last Judgment' (1526-27), beautiful stained glass and paintings by Rembrandt and his contemporaries. Due to the special encounters between past and present that take place here, Museum De Lakenhal is a source of inspiration for everyone!
