The fixed exhibit on Haarlem is quite small, but gives a good overview of Haarlems history. But it is the specials you should focus on. Currently (dec 2016) there is an exhibition on sports in Haarlem: do check the website for the latest update.

We enjoyed our visit to the museum. The video that is shown is very interesting and fun. The museum was being re-done when we visited but what was there was worthwhile to see. We recommend a quick visit.

A presentation of the cultural history of Haarlem. Which has a super clothing exhibition - but all the commentary was in Dutch which took the shine off it a bit. Worth visiting with the museumkaart, however I would have been a little disappointed if we...More

The permanent collection of this museum covers Haarlem's history, and is quite small. There's a part about justice, with executioners' swords and other justice-related items and depictions, among them the hanging of a mayor or governor (Ripperda). When I visited there was a temporary exhibition...More

We've lived in the area for the past 15 years and today we acted the tourists. We were over the moon to have come here and made us feel very proud of the local heritage we knew nothing about. Lovely

This museum with a couple of floors used to bear the name 'historic museum Haarlem', but they cut of the 'historic' part, probably to manage expectations. We started of with a movie of nine minutes on the history of Haarlem. The museum staff was very...More

Little museum telling the history of haarlem and its affiliation to water. Volunteers in the museum couldn't be more helpful and clearly love their city. The museum is a credit to them
