Lonely Planet review
The Universiteitsmuseum has interactive science exhibits and traces Utrecht University's research through the centuries. There's a recreated late 19th-century classroom, historic dentistry tools and way too many models of medical maladies. Take refuge out the back in De Oude Hortus , the old botanical garden, along with all the other dentophobes, who'll be quivering amid venerable trees and plants collected by the Dutch during their world exploits. The garden is an oasis of calm, sheltering numerous rare flowers and plants such as the ancient Ginkgo biloba tree.
