Behind the scenes of the Teylers Museum

Roundshot here.
It was built in 1787 from the legacy of Pieter Teyler van der Hulst, just like the Teylers Museum close to it. Pieter Teyler van der Hulst originally founded a hofje when his wife died in 1752 and he then purchased the Kolder hofje. In his will he stipulated that a new hofje should be built in his name and the old hofje premises sold (and the premises were then sold to the oldest surviving hofje foundation in Haarlem, the ‘Vrouwe- en Antonie Gasthuys’). It is by far the most impressive and imposing hofje in Haarlem. More here.
