Science Sights in Utrecht (2006)


I provide a tour of Utrecht, focusing on its scientific highlights. I begin at the Dom or cathedral, Utrecht's landmark, the Academy, and the University Museum, then proceed to the Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute and astronomical observatory on the Sonnenborgh, and end with a visit to the Minnaert Building, the present home of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Utrecht.
