At Teylers Museum, we do all we can to make your visit as pleasant as possible. You will be handed a floor plan on your arrival. The signposting in the museum rooms is deliberately unobtrusive. So you can get a taste of the authentic atmosphere of the past in ‘the oldest museum in the Netherlands’.


Museum Café

Visit the beautiful Tuinzaal, or garden room, during your visit to the museum and enjoy the coffee, tea, pastries and lunches of Truffels, our in-house caterer. The café has a wonderful view of the quiet courtyard. Notice the ‘art tree’ by Sjoerd Buisman (1948): a lime tree resting on five feet.

The museum café can also be hired as a venue for receptions, both during and outside of museum opening times.

Rental Possibilities

Museum shop

Are you looking for a nice gift or a lovely memento of your visit to the museum? Or would you like to continue reading an interesting exhibition catalogue at home? Our shop has a wide-ranging selection of books, cards, posters, bags, toys, design and other attractive items – you will find a nice surprise there every time.


Coats & Bags

Bags larger than A4 size and rucksacks cannot be brought into the vulnerable museum rooms. Please store them in the lockers in the cloakroom next to the entrance hall of the museum and place your umbrella in the (unguarded) umbrella stands. In damp weather, we ask you to please leave your coat in the cloakroom on account of the vulnerability of our building and our collection.
