Fresh bouquets and other types of floral art adorn the halls and corridors of the Frans Hals Museum. Decorating the halls with flowers in eye-catching vases from the museum’s ceramic collection is an old tradition and unique for an art museum.

Thirty years ago, an enthusiastic team of Friends of the Frans Hals Museum decorated the interior of the building with stunning arrangements. A new exhibition format was born. This year we present Museum in Bloom, in which two teams, each with its own completely distinct style, look and feel, create in succession an unforgettable floral atmosphere in the museum. Both teams will base their efforts on the theme In & Out, which runs through the museum’s 2019 programme.

In & Out

The ball is kicked off by the Friends’ team directed by Vibeke Struben. They will enhance the museum for four weeks, from 23 March to 21 April. After that the baton passes to flower arrangement artist Paul Wijkmeijer and his team from florists Klavertje Vijf, who will surprise visitors with their unique floral creations.
