The Frans Hals Museum | De Hallen Haarlem is awarded €1,000,000 by the BankGiro Lottery

The Frans Hals Museum | De Hallen Haarlem is thrilled to have been awarded €200,000 per year over five years. This substantial sum will be used to build on the museum’s collection. “We’re delighted with this fantastic sum of money,” says museum director Karel Schampers. “It puts us in a position to fill gaps in the collection, fully restore objects, and present our collection in the best possible way. We recently wrote a thorough collection plan, setting out our acquisition ambitions for the next few years. Thanks to the BankGiro Lottery, we’ll be able to add some wonderful acquisitions to our rich collection. The pieces we plan to acquire will be on view in the new permanent collection displays from 2011.”

BankGiro Lottery supports the cultural sector with more than €58 million.
