Teyler Museum. HAARLEM. 42. Route, 359
The *Teyler Museum (Pl. 19; D, E, 4) was founded in conse-
quence of a bequest of Pieter Teyler van der Hulst (d. 1778), a
wealthy Haarlem merchant. The collections include objects of
natural history, over 100 paintings by Dutch artists of the 19th
cent., and a collection of etchings and drawings by earlier masters.
The old building in the Damstraat has been enlarged by a hand-
some wing in the Renaissance style, erected in 1894 on the side
next the Spaarne. Entrance, Spaarne 46 (adm., see p. 354), Visit-
ors ring and enter their names in the book. Catalogue of the

Goltzius, Adr. van Ostade, and Claude Lorrain. The rest of this highly
valuable collection is shown on Tues. & Frid., 1-3 p.m., to visitors provided

At the corner of the Damstraat is the old Weigh House, a sand-
stone building of 1598, by Lieven de Key. — Opposite the Dam-
straat, on the right bank of the Spaarne, are the headquarters of
the Dutch Scientific Society. — The Spaarnewouder or Amsterdam
Gate (P). B, 4), farther to the H., is the only survivor of the med-
ieval town-gates; it was restored on the side next the town about
4600. — The modern Roman Catholic St. Dominikus Kerk (P1. 6;
D, 6) has a fine tower.
The curious tower (1613) of the Nieuwe or St. Anna Kerk (Pl. 5;
B, 5) also is by Lieven de Key. The unattractive nave was built
in 1649 by Salomon de Bray. Not far off is the Reformed Orphanage
for Girls, built by Lieven de Key in 1608 as an Oudemannenhuis;
the dining-hall is interesting. — To the W. of the Leidsche Vaart,
