The Rooms

The Frans Hals Museum – Hof has various rooms that are suitable for receiving both large and small groups. But whatever size your party may be, all guests will enjoy the atmosphere of the Golden Age. The art of celebrating and celebrating art go hand in hand with us.

Renaissance room

Originally, this was the dining room of the historic Old Men’s House. Here, you can dine with a party of 50 or hold a reception for 100 people. And the experience is made all that more special as the original character of the room has remained intact.

Civic Guard room

The Civic Guard room is Frans Hals’ hall of fame, where his famous civic guard paintings hang. Up to 60 guests can enjoy a dinner together here while simultaneously enjoying world-famous art!


The historic courtyard forms the heart of the museum. Here, you can hold a reception for 100 people in an enchanting setting that your guests will remember long after the festivities have finished.

Frans Hals Café

Interior architect Maurice Mentjens was inspired by Frans Hals’ civic guard paintings when designing the museum café. This modern space is ideal for a party of up to 50 people, and its small courtyard can also be used when weather permits.

Regents rooms

The two reception rooms of the regents and regentesses of the Old Men’s House were completely redecorated in 1754/1755 according to the rococo fashion of the time. These lavish spaces are perfect for a festive gathering.


The availability of rooms depends on the museum’s exhibition programme.
