On June 30th the Leiden museums (rather than the Leiden bars) will form the stage for a summer-time Saturday night. There is plenty to do at the Leiden Museum Night, from watching a tattoo at the Anatomical theatre to abseiling in the Pieterskerk. The event is organised by students, and if you buy your ticket in advance you get a € 2.50 discount.
