About the Museum

Museum De Lakenhal is a city museum of history and fine art in Leiden, Netherlands. One highlight is its collection of paintings from the Dutch Golden Age, including A Pedlar Selling Spectacles (Allegory of Sight), one of a series of five, The Senses, by Rembrandt. The museum also hosts a collection of altarpieces and religious artifacts from before the Protestant Revolution that were formally ceded to the state in 1572.

The museum is temporarily closed for restoration and it will reopen in the Spring of 2019.
