Until the end of 2018 the museum will be closed for a large-scale renovation. However, you can visit our temporary exhibitions in the Pesthuis. Now on: our summer programme On expedition with Naturalis including Wildlife Photographer of the Year. Order your tickets online.
This summer there is plenty to see, do and experience!
Over 200 researchers work at Naturalis. People who know everything, from the smallest beetle to the largest dinosaur. And everything in between! Every day, they are busy with nature. This is how we learn more about animals and plants and how we can protect them. To know more about these different species, we have to go on expeditions. For this, we travel all over the world. With your Expedition activity book at hand you will discover nature just like the researchers of Naturalis. Will you join us?
Travel with us to some beautiful places and visit some of our special research areas. You will climb Mount Kinabalu in Borneo, take a dive in the ocean and discover the Caribbean. You will also explore the Amazon rainforest and go on a safari in the Netherlands. After your exciting expedition you can enjoya bite or a drinkin the restaurant or on our terrace, enjoy!
