First Natural Lanzart

Taxidermy and Natural Wonders 

Edit Place

A small shop run by a taxidermist which contains natural curiosities and curious antiquities. Reasonable priced odd gifts are available here, from pufferfish to epoxy-sealed insect keychains. For gazing pleasure, there are grander scaled wonders from dinosaur bones to stuffed beasts of the African Savannah. No afternoon in the Hague is complete without a wander into the nooks and crannies of this strange shop, conveniently close to Grote Kerk.

Know Before You Go

From Grote Kerk Plein, walk up Prinsestraat 3 blocks. Turn Left on Korte Molenstraat at Cremers coffeeshop, walk the short block past the bookstore until you see it on the right. You can't miss it if it is open, the outside will be garlanded with taxidermied creatures, starfish, etc.
