If you are into 18th and 19th century scientific equipment, this is the museum for you. The best display of ancient mechanical and electrical equipment I have seen. Fascinating.
The place has some good collection of fossils and old dutch currency....The are some amazing landscapes and self potratit of Frans Hals....The meusuem guides are also a great help in understanding the collection....A must visti for all the art and physics lovers..!!!!
This is the oldest museum in the Netherlands, but is is not dusty at all. It has stayed with the times and is beautifully restored. History drips of the walls here. Make sure you get to see the library and the auditorium.
This museum does not just display exposition, like all or most museums do (and at Teylers the expositions are quite interesting and in a wide scope). Here the museum itself is the display, particularly the Oval room, showing how our ancestors visited a museum.
The building of Teylers museum is worth a visit in itself. In addition to an amazing collection of old scientific instruments, fossils, etc. the museum has very interesting temporary exhibits. They also organise activities for kids during school holidays.
Tyler is museum is situated in the center of haarlem, the finest woods where used to build it, amazing technical instruments of the past centuries are installed there and even for kids there is plenty of enterateinment

This museum has a little bit of everything. I was less interested in the rocks, instruments, fossils than the art. The Rembrandt etchings were fantastic and worth seeing. They have 265 of his etchings. 11 euro entrance fee.
Residents and non-residents should have been in the TEYLERS once in their lives! This is one of the most impressive museums you'll visit in you live. The paintings are remarkable as well as their collection of scientific instruments. Even the building itself is a reason to step in... breathtaking!
