Rotonde/ Rotunda, Teylers Museum
I knew very little about the Teylers Museum beforehand, and it turned out to be a huge pleasant surprise to me.

Teylers Museum is the first major public museum to be established in the Netherlands. Linen and silk merchant and banker Pieter Teylers van der Hulst stipulated that his estate to be used to create a museum of science and fine art upon his death, which happened in 1778. So in 1779, construction on the first part of the Teylers Museum began.
