Singer Museum in Laren
One of the cultural pearls of Het Gooi is the Singer Museum in Laren. Singer Laren is an art museum with extensive international collection and a theater with a very varied program. Van der Valk Hotel Hilversum - de Witte Bergen is just steps away from the museum!
The Singer Museum in Laren has a 'classic modern' collection of international visual art from the period 1880-1950. You will find works by artists from the Barbizon School area including Walter Griffin, Martin Borgord, Henri Le Sidaner and impressionist Gooi artists such as Jacob and Willem Dooijewaard. Meanwhile, the Singer Museum has been enriched with works by Bart van der Leck, Jan Sluijters, Leo Gestel, Chris Beekman, Jan Toorop, Else Berg, Gustave De Smet and Herman Kruyder, among others.
Since the establishment of the Singer Theater in the same building as the museum, you can enjoy a very varied program of theater, cabaret, musicals, classical music, children's performances and lectures in Laren. The Singer Theater has played a unique role in the rise of television in the Netherlands. More than 1,000 programs were recorded in the Singer Concert Hall. After that, the hall grew into a much-visited theater.
