Pieter Teyler Circle

Members of the Pieter Teyler Circle have a passion for this historic complex: that is the Foundation House, Pieter Teyler's original residence, which has been the headquarters of the Teylers Foundation for over 235 years, as well as Lorentz's laboratory, and the historic museum galleries. They are invited by the Director, Marc de Beyer, to discuss major restoration plans and the conservation of this unique cultural heritage. In addition, they enjoy all the privileges of Sky Watchers.
