We've posted before on going to the Van Gogh Museum, but Leiden itself has a lot of museums we can visit for free with our Museumkaarten. Last weekend, Clara and I went to the Naturalis Biodiversity Center, whose exhibits on the variety of life are astonishing.
More pictures below!
We spent most of our time in the "Nature Theater," where vast arrays of lifelike taxidermy are displayed with the animals in natural poses:
|I like the sloth's position especially. And the shark's.|
|The displays go up and over your head, like a tunnel.|
|This zebra is frozen in the act of fleeing.|
|The course of a pigeon in flight.|
