This is the Netherlands' National Natural History Museum, a merger of two former museums, rehoused in one of the country's most expensive buildings. It's most important claim to fame is the number of specimens making up the collection – a million vertebrates, 1,160,000 fossils, 5,250,000 insects and 2,290,000 other invertebrates – and that's just the zoological department.

Warning: the museum is closed Mondays.
