More than 200 years of art and science

Since 1784, the museum in Haarlem has welcomed the public to view its extensive collection of paintings (many of which from the Hague School and the Dutch Romantics), drawings – including beautiful specimens by Michelangelo and Raphael), fossils, minerals, instruments and books.

Oval Room

The museum’s monumental Oval Room – more than two centuries old and a highlight of the impressive interior – is a tourist attraction in itself. The museum’s more modern rooms regularly host exhibitions exploring a wide range of subjects.
