Frans Hals Museum - Hof

What does a museum contain? And what is ‘a work of art’ exactly?

In this theatrical encounter with the new Frans Hals Museum – led by Sjaak de Suppoost – the youngest children discover everything that has to do with art in a museum.

Active teaching methods stimulate the pupils to discover and do things themselves. Which is the largest painting? And which is the smallest? Is something new or old? The children are introduced to the museum and the art of the past and present. Through games that focus on looking at art, they find different shapes, colours, lines and dots: the building blocks of a painting.

Children are welcomed by the guide, who takes them on a voyage of discovery through the museum. But, is he a real guide… or is it perhaps… Frans Hals himself?!
