The Servais Society and the Halle City Museum boast an extensive collection of scores, photos, objects and documents related to the Servais family and the Halle musical life.


Part of the collection was on show from 2004 to 2015 in the permanent exhibition The Servais Family and musical life in Halle & Europe in the “Zuidwestbrabants Museum”. Items from the collection were also shown on the occasion of the great exhibition “Adrien François Servais 1807-2007. Worldfamous Halle cellist” in the “Oude Post” and the former Town Hall in the town centre.

As from 2016, Servais is also present in the exhibition “Halle, Heilig & Duivels” in the new city museum ‘den AST’ in Halle. More info about den AST:
