Get to know your inner scientist at the Universiteitsmuseum Utrecht (Utrecht University Museum). At the museum you will experience the differences between science now and in bygone days. Put on a lab coat and carry out experiments or investigate the differences between humans and animals. The Oude Hortus is the old botanical garden of Utrecht. The greenhouses are filled with exotic trees and plants, and is a relaxing place in the middle of the city center, where every season is different!
