Housed in the painter's town of Haarlem, Frans Hals Museum represents the largest repository of the famed Dutch artist's works in the world. Spending most of his life in Holland, Hals specialized in leaving his paintings with a "rough" finish. Visit the museum and peruse its collection of more than 750 paintings and works spread out over numerous galleries and exhibitions. Inspect Hals' "loose brushwork" up-close to fully appreciate the sense of life and movement it brought to his art, perhaps his most notable trademark. You can listen to an audio tour, included in your admission, or download the museum's smartphone app for more in-depth information along the way. Don't miss seeing the facility's collection of religious artwork and Haarlem-related artifacts also on display. Work out when and for how long to visit Frans Hals Museum and other Haarlem attractions using our handy Haarlem trip itinerary maker app.

Interesting building, artwork and other antiquities. Lovely, peaceful central courtyard. Mostly wheelchair accessible. There are only two rooms which cannot be accessed. There are accessible amenities. Friendly staff, well worth a visit.
Really great for art lovers and those who are into history! The building is really well maintained and so is the art! A very informative afternoon
