Teylers Museum

UpdateFounded with an endowment from a wealthy 18th century cloth and fabric merchant, the Teylers Museum is the oldest museum in the Netherlands, and walking into it feels like stepping back in time by 226 years.

The museum began as the “Cabinet of Curiosities” of Pieter Teyler van der Hulst, and remains housed in his former home. Opened to the public in 1784, it is still lit only by daylight. Items are displayed in beautiful glass cases and bell jars.
