Wereldmuseum Leiden’s mind-bending maps exhibit

August 23, 2023 @ 10:00 - October 29, 2023 @ 17:00 CEST


Need a place for a great first date? Or perhaps somewhere to show off to your friends? Point your compass towards Wereldmuseum Leiden’s latest exhibit! 

When you hear the word “map”, you probably think of a piece of paper depicting the geography of some country — but what if we told you a map can actually blow your mind?

Wereldmuseum Leiden’s latest exhibit, Maps: navigate and manipulate, challenges the boundaries of what you may think a map is, presenting its visitors with maps you never thought could exist. 

Navigate the possibilities of cartography

A map of Utopia? Of course, that’s a thing! A map of an autistic mind? Yep, they’ve got it. A map of time itself? You’ll find it down the hall and to the right.

To add to the spectacle, the museum has included contemporary art installations that certainly add to the mind-blowing nature of the exhibit.
