Delightful museum. English signage was very helpful with good explanations of the paintings. Not crowded and easy to negotiate the rooms.

Fascinating alms house in Haarlem. Lots of superb art, especially the still lifes. Still with original brick floors and leather wall coverings and other artifacts, and all the old clocks were going and struck on the hour. Very comfortable atmosphere in the museum, very enjoyable way to view art.

This is a very nice, well organized and informative exhibition showing the old master's painting in a relation with his contemporaries. The building itself also worth the visit.

Knew very little about Hals before we visited and now we feel like experts! We had purchased the Netherlands Museum pass, so we decided to take a quick trip inside. We ended up spending more time than we thought we would. Glad we didn't miss it.

Two hours will do it if you must, but come here to see why Frans Hals is rated by many Holland's greatest painter. If you disagree, look again at Hals's faces; They are as wonderfully painted as Rembrandt's but show more individual character, Lots of supporting art to put Hals in a rich context. Nicely laid out, well lit, altogether an up-to-date museum.
