Frans Hals Museum - Hof


The Frans Hals Museum and De Hallen Haarlem have come together to form the renewed Frans Hals Museum as of 30 March 2018: 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.

From an ‘Old Men’s House’ to new municipal museum
The Frans Hals Museum is divided over two locations: Hof and Hal.  They are within a short, scenic walk from each other, through historic Haarlem.

Now home to an array of art treasures, our Hof location was once a home for old men; a place where, in the Golden Age, gentlemen enjoyed their golden years. But since 1913, this courtyard building of Groot Heiligland has exhibited the municipal art collection, with numerous highlights from the same Golden Age.

The Transhistorical Musuem
Transhistorical exhibitions and collection-arrangements are an important theme at the Frans Hals Museum. The recent merger of the Frans Hals Museum and De Hallen Haarlem into one museum is partly inspired by the transhistorical project. Our visitors will therefore increasingly be surprised with combinations of old and new art, both at Hof and at Hal
