Fodor's Review

Located near the Frans Hals Museum, the town's history museum makes the most of its limited resources to mount two or three small temporary exhibitions a year, offering insight into the history of the city and the surrounding area. Among the permanent exhibits are video screenings (in English), models of the city, and touch-screen computers relating stories that take you back through history. There are fascinating old prints and maps, along with some apparently random exhibits, including one of the earliest printing presses, dating to the 17th century. Also on view here is an incisive exhibition on modern Dutch architecture, ABC Architectuur Centrum Haarlem, with plans and photographs from city projects already finished and still in the planning stages (De Bruijn's Woonhuis is particularly ingenious).
