Event Details

This year marks 200 years since the National Museum of Antiquities opened in Leiden. So if you haven’t already visited, then this is your time to go! With over 600 objects, including lots of both Dutch and Egyptian artefacts, there is plenty to see and do. These include amazing Egyptian temples, statues and mummies. 
To celebrate the 200 year anniversary, there is a temporary ‘200 years’ exhibition, showcasing the changes that have occurred over that period of time and how this has changed the museum. Some objects, which has since left the museum are back for this temporary time, so this is your only time to see them! There are also artefacts that have never been on display before and your chance to see the excavations in the Netherlands.
Along with this, there is an impressive projection show projected onto an old Egyptian temple, which is found at the entrance of the museum (you can see this for free if you pop your head in the door)! It’s a must-see. 
Date: Wednesday 25th April – Sunday 2nd September 2018
Location: Rijksmuseum van Oudheden, Leiden



April 25 (Wednesday) 10:00 - September 2 (Sunday) 17:00
