Frans Halsmuseum

Highly recommended
Since 1913, this museum has occupied the former hospice for the elderly (1608). Devoted mainly to the work of Frans Hals, paintings of civic guards and regents give visitors a clear idea of his evolution as a painter. The museum also has many works by other painters: old paintings, the Haarlem School (17 C), modern and contemporary Dutch paintings. The Frans Halsmuseum also contains a beautiful collection of decorative arts (notably furniture) and a replica 18C dolls' house.
