Museum Haarlem should definately be the first stop for anyone visiting the beautifull city of Haarlem. This small museum is situated in the charming street Groot Heiligland, just in front of the famous Frans Hals Museum. The history of Haarlem comes to live in a 10 minute introduction film (which is also available in english) and a collection of historic objects.  

There are several exhibitions during the year. You can check out the website for the most recent information. English translations are available for almost all exhibitions. Don't forget to pay a visit to the beautifull and newly renovated café and museumshop of this former hospital building.
