What people are saying about Teylers Museum

It is a trip from mill to mill, so there are only 2. Because the weather was warm that day, it is always wonderful to sail. But it is different from other cities with many canals in and around the city, where you see many monuments, that is not the case here. You pass a few old buildings, but not many. The guide could tell well, interspersed by an audio system.

It was amazing how this museum, with the extraordinary experts work here, can united people and can make the time stop. For me it was moment of turning to myself and also to open my mind for the important things. The power of the knowledge and the wisdom of the memory.

You can also see sides of Haarlem that you otherwise only get to see to a limited extent as a tourist and can get a first impression. However, if you want to experience the sights of Haarlem, you should do the Haarlem Boat Tour.

Very pleasant cruise along the Sparne around Haarlem. Despite the oppressive heat, our guide was always ready to provide interesting and helpful explanations in Dutch and English about the places we passed along the route.

Nice boat trip, we had a very enthusiastic captain.
