Teylers Museum, Haarlem
Teylers Museum is the oldest Dutch museum (as shown on the top of the boat across the canal). It took its name from the collectioner Pieter Teyler. He died in 1778 and he leaved his fortune and collections to a foundation. These collections became the basis for Teylers Museum. The building that stores todays collections (books, engravings, instruments and science objects) was built in 1885.
