“Not my cup of tea”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We had an hour to spend till the Frans Hals Museum opening, and it just filled the slack. There was not too much to see, not to my taste anyway. The museum building is interesting though.

“One of the most interesting museums we have ever visited.”

It was full of everything. Art, industrial instruments, technology, lifestyles etc. From entering to leaving our interest never waned. There was something for everyone. Great place, great value.

It is the oldest museum so visit it.
It is a beautiful building especially the ceiling.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

This is museum has an incredible collection of fossils and scientific instruments (we only got this far in 2 hours) everything is so interesting and the English audio guide is first rate.

The desk staff were very friendly and gave us good advice about museum cards...buy them for the adults but not the kids since kids are super cheap or free admission at all museums. We stopped in here after the Saturday market and a tour to the Tenboom museum so there was just not enoughtime to take it all in

“The oldest museum in The Netherlands, a must see !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

This museum started as the legacy of one man, Pieter Teyler. He lived from 1702-1778 and had a keen eye for art since he also bought an impressive collection of drawings by Michelangelo. His collection is shown in his former house and every couple of months there are special exhibitions. This is also a wonderful museum for children.
