    Always provoking and interesting photography at this museum.

    It is worth checking out. It is not very big and makes for a very nice change of pace.

    In addition, it is open later on Thursday and Friday nights (til 9:00 pm).

    This museum was a great find. While lesser known than the main museums in Amsterdam, it was no less popular. I was expecting a small exhibit on Henri Cartier Bresson when I went there. Boy was I surprised. The modern inside layout was like a labyrinth that took well over an hour to see all of the photos from just one exhibit. Cost was just 6.50 euro. A good, but small photo bookshop in the main lobby. Any exhibit at this museum I would imagine would be extensive.

    And the other one is FOAM, also on Keizergracht, a museum for photography, inspirational, complex, contemporary, yet pretty hard to digest. Hope you will appreciate my sincerity :)

    New photography museum with both a European and an International focus. Located in a renovated canal house. Interesting permanent collection with many "masters" - and exhibit space for temporary/travelling shows. When I was here I saw an excellent show about the "noir" era photographer Wegee!
