There are 2 museums under one roof here: Fotomuseum and Gem. There were 3 exhibitions on display that day. Certainly very interesting, but also not big enough, at least for 8 euros a piece (kids go free). Not in favour of combined ticket sold in the next door Gemeentemuseum as the latter has enough for a full day's visit. The... More

I went two times and the same impression: they present very well and the choice of the photographers are great but the exhibition is very small.

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.

This is a cute little museum with some very interesting photography. There is also a modern arts section that is 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

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

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.
