Frans Hals was a painter who lived from 1580 untill 1666. In the museum you will find a lot of work from him but also paintings from other famous Dutch painters like Jan Steen......
There are also some antique furniture, a beautiful old dollshouse from the 18th century, glassware and ceramics (also 18th century)
