Monday morning in Leiden

Our visit to Leiden falls on a Monday morning. Are the museum close on a Monday. We plan to walk around visit the Wall of Poems, Hortus Botanicus where first tulips in NL where planted. Any other recommendation where we can find historical significance during our visit? Any recommendation for a good though at a reasonable prices for lunch in Leiden?

So you expect us to google the opening hours of all Leiden museums for you?

Well you have to look them up for yourself. I know that Naturalis is open, but I think the rest will be closed. A mondaymorning in a smaller city is not exactly fun. Nearly everything including shops and restaurants wil be closed. Maybe the Pieterskerk with the monument for the Pilgrimfathers is open

haha, Cecilia I did googled but not sure with what I surfed. I'm addressing the question to the people who lived in Leiden and maybe familiar with these museums. Anyway, thanks for the links, didn't expect to meet you also in Leiden forum. i know you can't resist of being helpful, sometimes tourists like us get spoiled too with freebies. When you visit your uncle in San Diego, I hope to reciprocate and give you places that are not mentioned on TA things to do. Will email you my online address on your website.

Thanks Rieto, at least we can visit Pieterskerk too. Leiden is a very historical place during the time of Prince William of Orange.

Well I am a bit familiair with the town. Leiden University, the oldest in the country, is my Alma Mater. But opening times are constantly changing, because a lot of the lesser known museums are mostly visited by Dutch. So their opening times change with the school holidays. And for William of Orange you have to be in Delft.

I was satisfied with that answer from Waesk, I was looking for that post on this forum and forgot that it was logged on Hague. I didn't refer to all my threads. Anyway, thanks for referring to it again.
