Evening program

Museum visit
November 7, ±18h00, € 35,- (includes drink and snack)

If you don’t have enough time to discover Haarlem because of the busy conference program.
Visit the Frans Hals museum after closing time. Especially for visitors of the Conference on Teaching deaf Learners the Museum opens her doors in the evening. While enjoying a beverage and a snack enjoy the works of Frans Hals.  

The Frans Hals Museum holds an excellent collection of Old Masters, organises high- quality exhibitions on art from the Golden Age, and realises remarkable shows with leading contemporary artists. In so-called ‘fusion exhibitions’, old and contemporary art are brought into conversation. Think paint strokes meet pixels, with the museum presenting old alongside new(er) art or providing 16th- and 17th-century artwork with a 21st-century interpretation. The renewed Frans Hals Museum invites you to look at art differently and to see more.

The Frans Hals Museum is housed in two picturesque monumental buildings: Hof and Hal. The Hof location was built in the 17th century as a home for old men. with a beautiful regent’s room, characteristic dining room and stunning courtyard. Frans Hals must have even walked around here himself.

November 7, € 50,-
After the museum visit the evening will be pursued with a dinner at a beautiful spot in the heart of the city. Depending on the number of guests we will dine at a place offering you a three-course meal.
If you want to join the evening program please indicate while you register online.
