Reminisce and explore
The Frans Hals Museum collects, manages, displays and examines works of art as signs of the time from which they originated. The museum also regularly reports on this in (scientific) publications, articles, catalogues and magazines. Infused with a great deal of knowledge and made with a great deal of love, our catalogues are an enriching memento of your exhibition visit as well. In addition to the catalogues, we also have a collection of beautiful books and magazines for sale in our museum shop. Here you can find an overview of all the publications on offer, some of which can also be downloaded.
