5 hours walking tour Leiden and visit American Pilgrim Museum with your own private art historian, Private Tour


In a 5 hours walking tour I will show you important monuments and sites related to the Pilgrim Fathers, who were in Leiden from 1609 to 1620, such as the Town Hall, the remains of the Church of Our Lady, the William Brewster Alley, St. Peters Church, Pesijnshof (where John Robinson used to live), the steps down the canal where the Pilgrims embarked, the Adriaensz. van der Werff monument and more.

When open, we will also visit The American Pilgrim Museum in a house built in 1370 whose rooms recall Pilgrim times. Director of the Museum is Professor Jeremy Bangs, born in Oregon. After study at the University of Chicago, he completed his degree work at the University of Leiden (Ph. D. , 1976).

Please note: The Pilgrim Museum is open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays only (1 to 5 pm, entrance fee 5 euro)!

We can extend our tour by going to other museums, the Pilgrim Fathers church in Delfshaven/Rotterdam or visit Delft/The Hague/Gouda/windmills (transportation not included).

It's your tour!!!
