The Netherlands: Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden

Naturalis: It’s a museum!

Well, let me give more details about this museum.

It is a big museum as I may say. It has different themes on each floor and it goes from the sky, land to sea. They even have pre-historic bones. This museum allows children of all ages and adults to explore and learn more about the biodiversity as it also states on the name of the museum. If you are really into biology, this is a nice place to know and gather information.

It’s like a zoo but the animals are preserved, they have lots of animals of those you may not have yet seen in real life. They also have a collection of rocks which I really liked and also giving explanations on how they form or what are their functions on earth. In terms of wheelchair friendly, yes they are. They have elevators but its quite small, because it can only fit one wheelchair at a time, so it may take a long time to bring a group of people to one floor to another. Some attractions are behind glass. I must say that, on that part it is kinda difficult to manoeuvre wheelchairs and people with eye problems should be guided. They have a small cafe where you can eat and toilet is also available on the premises. This place is good for a school day trip for you can tour the whole museum for 2 hours or more.
