Something for the whole family! Let your kids run wild at Wereldmuseum Leiden’s Animal Academy

July 28, 2023 @ 10:00 - October 29, 2023 @ 17:00 CEST


Do you have kids bouncing off the walls at home? Aren’t they so cute? (Do you need somewhere to entertain them during the autumn holidays? πŸ‘€) Look no further, Wereldmuseum Leiden’s DierenAcademie exhibit is fun for children and parents alike!

With a series of exciting rooms focusing on specific animals, the DierenAcademie (Animal Academy) exhibit allows your children to run between interactive exercises and learn from the world’s beautiful creatures.

Teach (and tire out) your children

As soon as you walk into this colourful exhibition, the games begin. Your children are free to interact with almost every element of the exhibit. In fact, it’s encouraged.

They are welcome to hop like a kangaroo, howl like a wolf, hide like a leopard, or even push a giant ball of “dung” like a dung beetle! This makes for some great photo ops β€” but also for some excellent learning experiences. πŸ…

For children and parents alike

Not only is this exhibit packed with fun experiences for children, but also for the adults in attendance! Yes, your child is extremely cute when wearing a fake wolf tail, but the exhibit offers more than just some great “awww” moments.

The DierenAcademie also looks to point to the bigger picture β€” how we as humans interact with our environment, and what can we learn from the animal kingdom?

I’m in! When, where, and how?
