“William Klein exhibition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

The whole museum was set up for an exhibition of William Klein's work, which worked really well in the lovely old canal house.

Foam also has a nice cafe, a little library room where you can have a seat and browse through some photography journals and a small but well stocked bookshop.

One of my favourite parts of our Amsterdam trip!

“William Klein Retrospective”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Planned a trip to Amsterdam and was delighted to discover the William Klein exhibition was on at this gallery. Got a taxi as we had just arrived and heavy rain. Taxi driver hadn't heard of the gallery (or so he said) so ended up driving in circles and being charged for the pleasure! Hotel receptionist had also not heard of it... strange, as it is marked on the maps and there are tourist signs! Anyway, excellent exhibition on 3 floors with so many of Klein's photographs it was hard to absorb it all. Good atmosphere, modern space. Bit expensive for admission but plenty of his work to see. Would recommend a visit if you are in the city.

“good if you like photographybut if not..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Felt a little pricey for what it was. if you like photography great!! We saw William Klein and if you liked his work you would be happy with your visit, but, if not, you might feel short-changed. It's easier where there is a variety of exhibits as if one doesn't work for you the next might. Also museum a little small.

“Make time for FOAM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

If you have any interest in photography as an art form, make time for a trip to FOAM. Ever changing exhibitions with some really interesting, challenging work and a nice little café too.
