    Het Universiteitsmuseum is in één woord: leuk! Vooral op de bovenste verdieping is het rariteitenkabinet echt goed ingericht, en ook Tot op het Bot is mooi ontworpen en ingevuld.

    Bonus: de aangrenzende Botanische Tuinen zijn een heerlijk stukje rust in mooi Utrecht. De oude kassen hebben prachtige kleuren en zijn echt foto-juweeltjes!
