  • Ok, I'll admit it. I love naked women. It is what it is. I'm genetically wired that way. And Helmut Newton gives me what I want. The Foundation is really a museum housing Newton's personal collection ...  read more »

  • I still had some time to check of my flight, so I spontaneously went to this museum. Since the European month of photography in Berlin will take place the admission was free. Interesting collages that I previously did not know were the yellow press. Still, I hadn't seen the pictures of Caroline of Monaco. The portraits of his wife of Alice Springs take a large part and are absolutely worth to be seen.

  • If you are into photography then this is a must visit. Great selections and overall nice venue. Cheap entry fee too.
  • Dig deep into HN's life starting at the Personal items area at the ground floor. See some of his great works on the first floor and other exhibitions of great photographers. Loved the place. Only negative remark: beware of the unfriendly staff.
  • It is unfortunately not a Museum! Note that it is here at only to an exhibition, a gallery of a single photographer. Occasionally you will find a few pictures by other photographers, but you are looking for a real Museum with exhibits and the history of photography there unfortunately in vain! There is no info about how photography has evolved, what are the techniques or how to edit images out of images of that a photographer there are there as well as any other exhibits, some a few personal belongings of this photographer but no comprehensive collection of cameras, lenses, Sativen etc. Info to the images are not even there, what settings were used, and under what conditions these images etc. incurred A majority of the pictures only increases from old magazines, which thereby even more noise and muddy look as the original (some original magazines are out there) primarily shows are there just some fashion / portrait and a little architecture. Photography offers so many areas, landscape, nature, animal, street - photography and so much more but none of it is held in here somehow. Also the whole modern new trends, such as Selfies or apps are completely ignored. All in all is very a pity, because it is all about photography and as a museum it should hold but also the whole story and be instructive. If one is not a fan of this Newton (I don't know him and also not very particularly to find his images), you should reconsider rather twice a visit. I'll waste never again 10 euro for it. Also, the employees are also very unfriendly. Man forced his mini backpack front to wear even though there's not begin a reason (space, no expensive priceless exhibits, only a few images are no originals, there can by a backpack on the back break down nothing and whether one which steals from the backpack, well that would then surely our problem.) A logical reason for this unnecessary provision there is no think so, because one reason can be not also called one for). I can only hope that one of those responsible for this "Museum" reads this and takes it too seriously and even what there actually offered and what they want to be is concerned about. It certainly isn't a museum. No thank you and never again!
