Museum with a good lightning and cozy exhibition halls. A lot of space to view expositions and to not disturb other visitors. Very good and cozy restaurant.

Exhibition rooms very well organised and illuminated. Photograps are the majority of the exhibits, but there are also some short movies. Apart from the photo department, there are around 4 rooms with other art. Very interesting is the photo exhibition about what people eat throughout the world.

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 is worth buying the ticket to the other part of the museum where there are many more photos on display. It really was a delightful way to spend a few hours.

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 best to check out in advance what is on show. The staff on the ticket sales desk were not very helpful or friendly, which was in striking contrast to the Gemeentemuseum next door. Because the doors into the main exhibition space had been whitewashed out as part of the display, we missed the entrance to the second gallery on our first attempt to find it, and couldn't face going back to the grumpy helpdesk to ask where it was. It was worth persisting, however, as we really enjoyed the installations and video pieces we found there.
The restaurant was stacked out with several coachloads of pensioners, who were visiting the restaurant but not the exhibitions! You can buy a combination ticket for the fotomuseum and the Gemeentemuseum - if only we had been to the latter first, where the friendly staff would have mentioned this! Suprisingly, the staff claimed that there is no discount here for blind visitors, though wheelchair users should ask about discounts. Given the accessibility challenges of an art museum, this is not the most logical policy. In terms of mobility access, the museum was well laid out to enable access around and through the installed pieces.

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.

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!

Yes, often very interesting photos and films of today’s photographers. And there is mostly another interesting exhibition of modern art too, apart from the ‘light art’
The museum is next to the Art Museum The Hague , so if you are still fit, visit both of them.

Having visited the Gemeentemuseum’s Erwin Olaf exhibition recently, We visited the Fotomuseum Den Haag’s twin exhibition with Olaf’s oeuvre. Compared to the Gemeentemuseum this exhibition concentrates on black and white photography. Aging, sex, gender, race are dominant themes and the work strongly echos the drive to technical perfection. It often parallels Mapplethorpe in themes and perfection.
Next to the main exhibition do not forget to visit Marwan Bassiouni’s ‘New Dutch Views’ that creatively combines Mosque interiors with Dutch urban and rural landscape exteriors framed in windows. Also worth noting is ‘Grid Connections’ by Gerco de Ruijter, which display artistic selections from aerial photographs. Orlof is in the Fotomuseum till the end of 16 June. Bassiouni and de Ruijter stay till September 1st.
