A small gallery full of charm. The current exhibition compares Hals with his Dutch and foreign compatriots and really does contrast his style with those that are more refined if less authentic.

I went to this museum not knowing what to expect. I was not familiar with Frans Hals, but I found his work more impressive than the Rembrandts I saw in Amsterdam. If you are interested in Dutch Masters, then this museum is a must see.

Situated in a beautifull old buidling with an attractive enclosed courtyard (accessbile in the summer and gorgeous to sit in and soak up the atmosphere), it makes for a pleasant visit. Grand old master pieces by Frans Hals and other dutch painters in an almost period setting. People are very friendly and helpful and the museum is only a couple of minutes walk from the center.
Check before hand if there is a a special exhibition

Haarlem is not only a beautiful town to visit, with its 17th century town square and wonderful cathedral, it also has one of the best art museums in Europe. To me this is one of the few ideal museums in the world: it has a wonderful collection of Dutch painting, the building and grounds are a pleasant environment, and its collection can be seen at a leisurely pace in two to three hours. Haarlem is only a 15 minute train ride from Amsterdam Centraal, and well worth a visit.
