Contemporary gallery of photography with many rooms, for different artists. They also have a nice bookshop, so if you collect photography books or zines, deffinitely worth to visit. I enjoyed it more than FOAM.

This is more a gallery and the exhibits will change. But you get to see a traditional canal side house, well 2 actually, as you move from room to room. There is also an exhibit in the garden house and I’m sure in summer it...More

Say the word museum and I think most people imagine a space exhibiting – at least in part – a permanent collection. This place isn't that sort of place. Instead it features temporary exhibits of contemporary art photography, both solo and group shows. The work...More

Very special and pleasant surprise to visit this hidden gem in the heart of the city, small but intimate, very sensational curation of contemporary photography in a charming historical maison of great history.

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 FOAM.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
