We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this fascinating two room museum next to the Hooglandse church in Leiden. The museum was known to be a home for Roman Catholic priests at the Hooglandse Church, before the Reformation, when the two rooms were connected as a...More
We were doing a research project on the Pilgrims and on learning that they went to Leiden, I did some looking around online. I found this museum's website and we went. The docent and director were very knowledgeable and extremely helpful in giving us information...More
This was a highlight of our visit to Leiden! Not a typical museum with tags on everything but much more interactive. Along with the group of people who were there when we arrived, we spent about an hour and a half exploring this two room...More
I believe we were told this is the oldest house in Leiden and it is run by a man who is very knowledgeable about the Pilgrims who fled England in view of their religious beliefs, arrived in Amsterdam and then moved to Leiden. Years later...More
A small museum of two rooms may sound on paper to not amount to much, but talking with the curator is like having your own private tour guide. There is a collection of furniture, pottery, household items, maps and books dating from the 1200's to...More
We found this small museum on a very hot day. We waited while the guide was finishing her prior tour. One room has many old books and documents that you can touch and read. This room is from the time of the pilgrims. We asked...More

We're glad you enjoyed your visit. It isn't necessary to wait for a prior tour to be finished, because there isn't a set story we tell. You can join at any time and ask questions and what we talk about will turn to your topics...More
This museum is small and hospitable. I arrived on a Thursday about mid afternoon. There are two sides. A 17th c house and a 14th C house. Both different with so much to see. I think it is up to you to make the museum....More
As other reviewers have noted, this is not a museum in the traditional sense. In my view, it is much better: it was like stepping into a painting by one of the Dutch Old Masters. The 14th century house is steeped in history. The museum's...More
The museum was officially closed but through a mutual acquaintance, Tessa (the owner) opened the museum to us and gave us a private tour. Wonderful collection of artifacts and anecdotes about the Pilgrims who came here before going to America. Highly recommended, especially for Americans...More

If you are looking for information that is in the Leiden archives, all baptism, marriage, and burial records are accessible online at the site of the archives, now calling itself Erfgoed Leiden en Omstreken. Search for: Erfgoed Leiden en Omstreken, personen." In the category "personen" you can seach by surname ("achternaam") or first naam ("voornaam"). You will have to try variant spellings separately, as the computer does not bundle them for you. I attempted to provide a link, but Trip Advisor's automatic response is "Sorry, questions may not include HTML or website links. Please edit your answer."
Other than that, I am unable to hep you with this sort of research.
