Japanese treasures

Japanmuseum SieboldHuis was named after Dr. Phillip Franz von Siebold (1796-1866), who lived in the house from 1832 to 1845. His prints, lacquer and ceramics, fossils, herbaria, animal specimens, clothes, old maps and many other treasures are on display. They were all collected by Von Siebold in Japan between 1823 and 1830.

The artifacts are part of the collections belonging to Naturalis Biodiversity Center, the Dutch National Museum of World Cultures foundation and Leiden University. Discover the best pieces of the Von Siebold collection with the free audio tour.
