Review
A most unusual museum, The Dolhuys in Haarlem focuses on psychiatry, mental illness, and the fine line between madness and society's perception of what is normal. The visitor is sent on an interactive journey from the psychiatrist's office, through the world of insanity (and quite possibly genius), to an appreciation, or at least some sense of what it must be like to suffer mental illness. Permanent exhibits show the changing way that mental illness has been perceived and treated throughout history here in the Nederlands, whilst temporary installations deal with more contemporary subject matter. An interesting place to visit, not only to explore the museum but also to explore oneself.
