Location Rapenburg 28

Road works city center
Until January 2025, a longer waiting and driving time will apply for shuttle vans from the Haagweg car park. The museum remains accessible, but car traffic also has to detour due to road works in the city center.
The National Museum of Antiquities (RMO) is located in Leiden’s historical city centre, 10 minutes’ walk from Leiden central railway station.
