  • We visited both these photography museums in the same day. FOAM was by far the best. This one is a bit niche. Looks closed from the outside but an automatic door gains you entry. More expensive than F...  more »

  • Very pretty museum! The pictures were lovely and the staff were super helpful. The gift shop is rather nice as well.
  • Absolutely love Huis Marseille! I went there five times already and never got disappointed. They have amazing photographs and exciting exhibitions. They curate everything in a very nice way and you walk out with the feeling to have learned something about the presented topics. Great place!
  • The restored canal property (dating from the ~17th century) makes a great, characterful setting for the contemporary photo art collection. Most works are by German artists and date from circa 1970 to early 2000s. The current (March 2018) exhibit includes works by Andreas Gursky and the Bechers. Typologies are well represented. Definitely worth a visit for fans of this type of photography but will probably be interesting for others as well. (Most would spend no more than one hour here.)
  • It's sparse, though they say seven floors. The North Korea exhibit was very fascinating, we know about it, but to see it is something else. It felt like the Israeli/Palestine exhibit was lacking some context. A comparison to the Berlin Wall could have been very moving, but as it is, not a ton of emotion is envoked.
  • Nice museum. One of the smaller museums in Amsterdam, but a very nice venue. The museum occupies two canal houses, giving visitors also the opportunity to take a closer look at those houses from the inside. The museum regularly features great photography exhibitions.
