I went here for the Leonardo da Vinci exhibition and it was great! Be sure to also check the rest of the collection of the museum, they have some very nice fossils and scientific instruments.

Teyler's museum, the oldest in Holland has a fine collection of minerals and fossils. Then, in the room shown here, there is a wonderful collection of 17C, 18C and 19C scientific instruments. They are beautifully made and so interesting. The paintings are good too.
