Nice Museum to see Dutch Photography

I like photos and found it to be a interesting collection. You would have to like photography to find it interesting.

The Fotomuseum is a fair way out of the centre of the Hague, but liking photography we decided to make the trip out there. I had expected a decent sized museum of photography, perhaps with a permanent collection and then changing exhibitions. Unfortunately I found it very disappointing, as it was basically just one room with the work of one... More

We just happened to see that this exhibit was at the Fotomuseum in Den Haag while we were visiting. The exhibit has now been extended until August 16, 2015. If you are a fan of any musician in the last 40 years then I bet this photographer has probably worked with them. There is a special small exhibit but it... More

I never left this little museum in my hometown disappointed over all the years I've been here. It clearly has a good curator and a keen eye for talent. It's linked with GEM, a modern art museum. So you buy one ticket and get two musea. Good deal. The adjacent bar/restaurant is not bad either. Especially when the sun heats... More

T was after the brilliant Rothko Exhibtion in the GEM, Gemeente Museum of The Hague, that we had an aftermath at her little sister, het Fotomuseum. This one is only next door. We enjoyed the expo of the "Zilveren Camera", which shows the winners of a competition of documentary and journalist photography. A nice review of the good news and... More

This smale scale museum surprises every visit with with an interesring photographer or a special theme. The small book store needs a quality upgrade.

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. The current exhibition is the "Zilveren Camera" (silver camera), which gives award in several categories... More

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
