If you want a whiff of more contemporary culture without spending the entire day locked in some abstract museum, try the Fotomuseum. Small (expect to blaze through it in an hour or so) but interesting with both photos and modern art on display. The restaurant at the end can be visited separately and you can hop over to the much...

We visited the Gemeentemusem Den Haag, next door and decided to see the Fotomuseum as well. Had we gone here, just to see the fotomuseum, we would have been disappointed (because it's quite small), but as we were there, we were glad to have gone.

This foto museum is have to find. The map app on my iPhone showed a different location marked with the name. When we arrived there was no foto exhibition on. Given we were there in August this was surprising. Thankfully there are other museums next door.

I really enjoyed the exhibition at the Fotomuseum, which was about the interaction of nature and the artificial. Some of it was engrossing, some of it gross - a really well curated set of thought provoking pieces. The exhibition filled the whole gallery space, across all floors, and there was no permanent collection on display, so a visitor might be... More

Great museum, but I have to admit that that depends on the exhibition. They also have a good shop and under the museum a very nice restaurant.

It's always nice to stroll around the Filmmuseum. Sometimes you love the photography, sometimes you don't, but then just have a coffee or beer in the nice bar / restaurant

This is one of the museums I visit a few times a year. How often depends on the expositions and events offered.

There was a display of pictures of 3 amateurs. Well known dutch people. but they were well known for something else then their photography. There was a reason for that.

The exposition in summer 2012 in the photomuseum is very on the dark side. It is small...and the expositions change, but go to the gemeentemuseum next door. If you are planning a lot of museums in Holland get a museumkaart for 45 Euro....in the Hague don't forget Escher!
