We been here for the Annual Observatory Days. A walk through the historical buildings, attended a lecture, a nice light laboratory, two old (130-160 years old) telescopes, some documentaries, a mobile planetarium and some more. Too bad it was cloudy, but it was interesting anyway if astronomy is in your heart.

For anyone who is slightly inclined to be mildly interested in space or science or stars or planets or anything remotely related thereto - ASSUREDLY GO! Photography buffs will enjoy the pictures, displays are well put together and are available in English too. Guided tours are available and are provided by an Astronomy student. Some stairs are involved so heads up to those struggling with knees etc.

Make a tour. In 1.5 our they will take you trough the visitor center as well as the domes and telescopes. The tourguides will tell about modern astronomy, the history of the observatory and the astronomical research in Leiden.
