  • The Teyler's Museum was on my bucket list so there today put a green check mark behind. Is really a museum for the enthusiast. My love for old mostly colorless stones and minerals is not very large so I have today confirmed once again seen. The old coins I found definitely be worth checking out. Ran around with the idea that the there here 50 years ago looked exactly the same. Bit heavy, gloomy, far from attractive and past glory but totally fine for lovers of course. However, I had me here after all these rave reviews more of suggested.

  • The oldest museum in the Netherlands is in terms of building a museum in itself. Great, what a grandeur. In addition to the usual old masters and prints the museum has a technical/scientific collection of says. The history of a lot of things that we regard as normal today is presented. A must for all young people who are married with their mobile phone: there is a lot of thinking to preceded! And that's just one example. Highly interesting all.

  • Love their diverse collection. The building alone is great to visit. So much history. For kids there are always lots of things to do.
  • The building itself is stunning. The exhibitions (e.g. fossils, minerals, instruments) are old fashioned, but that works very well. The collection of paintings and drawings is excellent. We had a great time.
  • Splendid museum. A must go for anyone who visits Haarlem. A science lover would definitely fall in love with the place. There's something to cater the interest of everyone.
  • Very good museum with effectively the history of science. Good for kids and adults alike.
  • Excellent museum with lot of interesting collection of fossils, art and science equipments. Must visit for high school students for great learning experience.
