It was only the second time I had walked into the Teylers Museum, but it really felt like a second home. That is, if home was a fancy old house owned by an eccentric, worldly uncle who may have the wardrobe to Narnia stashed somewhere just waiting to be discovered.
I'm not a car person, nor a history person, but this 200+ car collection is fabulous. We expected just a warehouse of cars, but found a really thoughtful curation and display of the development, marketing and celebrity of the automobile. We definitely didn't plan enough time to see everything. We felt we almost had the place to ourselves, aside from a handful of enthusiasts, and the entire museum was made for being appreciated and photographed.
We went on a Friday evening, when the museum is open late, has live music and serves drinks in the lobby from a bar stocked with a full selection of Van Gogh Vodka and all the fixings for cocktails! The atmosphere really brought new life to van Gogh for me. I usually prefer my museums with fewer people, but I highly recommend this time and place, especially if you're feeling a little bored of the museum scene.
