Museumcafé and Café Abel

Want to take a break from the museum visit? That's possible in our atmospheric museum café. Enjoy the most delicious coffee and tea from different parts of the world and taste the bread and toppings from local business owners from the city of Leiden. The menu has, amongst others, bread with Leidsche cheese, tomato and pumpkin seeds, bread with raw ham, lettuce and tomatoes and bread with homemade hummus.

To enter the museum a Covid vaccination certificate is not neccesary, but this is mandatory by law to enter the museum café from September 25th  onwards.


Looking for something special? We have a shop full with exclusive jewelry, books, special Buddha figures, gifts for yourself or for a loved one and much more. The shop can also be accessed without museum entrance. In the shop you will also find products related to the exhibition AZTECS. Some products are only available in our shop, making us the only selling point of it in the Netherlands.
