Cateringfor all tastes
Refreshments during a break, a quick, healthy lunch or a lavish dinner? We have something for everyone, whatever the location. From large business meetings, lunches and walking dinners to small private dinners. With food and drink, ambiance and layout to suit all tastes and every need, whatever you’re looking for, we provide that unique combination. Together with our catering partner Vermaat, our emphasis is on providing a wide range of catering options serving healthy, sustainable produce.
An event or meeting in the new Naturalis can easily be combined with a workshop in one of our workspaces or an inspirational talk by our scientists. Naturalis has access to 150 scientists who will be delighted to tell you about their work. Clearly, the content will be in line with the theme of your meeting or event.
Here at Naturalis, you can celebrate your successes in a unique way. You can invite your partners to an exclusive museum opening, for example. Just imagine... We welcome your guests with an aperitif in the Auditorium, and one of our scientists gives an inspiring talk on biodiversity. And, of course, you’ll get to see T. rex Trix and the various exhibitions in the museum. In the meantime, the tables have been set for dinner in the imposing Atrium and a live band is playing. The evening ends with a swing on the dance floor. That's an evening your guests would talk about for a long time to come!
Naturalis Biodiversity Center believes strongly in protecting and maintaining biodiversity. We therefore encourage the use of public transport and we don’t reserve parking spaces. In addition, parking by the building is extremely limited. The new Naturalis is within walking distance of Leiden Central Station (10 minutes on foot). Prepare yourself well and make sure your guests are aware of the situation. You can find more visitor information, house rules and FAQs under Practical Info.
