This is an interesting little museum on the history of Haarlem. However, there is no English translation of the information, except for a quirky little film you can watch. If you don't speak Dutch you may not think it worth the 7 Euro entrance fee.

I nice museum opposite to the Frans Hals museum. We spend 1 hour here. The nicest part was the cute movie about the Haarlem city history. I can recommend a visit.

The fixed exhibit on Haarlem is quite small, but gives a good overview of Haarlems history. But it is the specials you should focus on. Currently (dec 2016) there is an exhibition on sports in Haarlem: do check the website for the latest update.

We enjoyed our visit to the museum. The video that is shown is very interesting and fun. The museum was being re-done when we visited but what was there was worthwhile to see. We recommend a quick visit.
