Overview
More
The Frans Hals Museum and De Hallen Haarlem came together to form the renewed Frans Hals Museum: one museum at two locations. Where old meets new. Historical works hang alongside contemporary installations, and the Golden Age sits alongside the modern day. The meeting of Old Masters and contemporary art lets you look in a different way and see more.

Really good collection, I was specially impressed by a combination of old and modern paintiongs in some rooms. Very impressive portraits. Definetely worth of visiting, even though the museum is rather small.

If you like Frans Hals as an artist this intimate museum is very enjoyable. It is not overwhelming and the quality and range of the artist's work is there to experience.

Frans Hals Museum is never a disappointment. The exhibits are changing and present a fresh look at the Dutch masters. This time there was a exhibit where the museum had medical students come in and look at the portraiture of the groups and individuals to...More

Take the time to visit both locations. Submerse yourself in how things were centuries ago. Walk outside and see the same surroundings you just saw inside on canvases.

Be sure you go to this one (as compared to the one in the city center), where the Hals paintings are. A modest walk, or short can ride, from the city center. Many paintings by Hals and others, well-displayed in a museum that is not...More

Recently rehung, the museum has taken a contemporary twist in presenting its Old Masters, juxtaposing them with works by modern artists. The commentaries are informative and the whole concept illuminates both new and old. The Interpretations with giant flower arrangements are stunning. Particularly delightful is...More

We’re not huge on museums, but decided to visit this one partially for the setting and because we erroneously believed there to be a few Vermeers on display. The woman who sold us the tickets explained that there have never been any Vermeer, nor will...More

The Frans Hals museum belongs to the second tier of quality museums - in the world. At the top: Prado, Vatican, Rijks, Louvre, Portrait Gallery, Hermitage,... To be second tier is like two Michelin stars: top-quality. God knows what happened at the Frans Hals. The...More

You can do it in 2 hours but I suggest 3 hours, then you are not so rushed [& still have time for another attraction plus a beer or 2 at Jopenkerk Brewery!🍻
