  • Above all, this is a great building where you can get lost and that is also a haven of peace within the Amsterdam hustle and bustle. The Courtyard garden is unique to a museum in a busy city. At the moment there are pictures of Berenice Abbott, who made pictures in New York especially in the 1930s. Nice time picture is put down there. However, the pictures are often small in size; A pity but understandable; The rooms are not very large.

  • Interesting that we as American came all the way to Amsterdam to see a photo exhibit of an American photographer.  more »

  • Three weeks on and I still remember how much that gallery affected me. How it almost moved me as a space, if that's even possible. The show that was on wasn't of any personal interest but the building...intimate, quiet, imposing but not intrusive, it was a joy to walk in. And those massive windows, they made me feel like I was in a house that I wanted to get very comfortable in. It doesn't look it but it's a massive space split up in two buildings and the up and down of stairs adds a 'getting lost' sense that in a space like that is very welcome. It's a unique experience and I'll definitely add it to my necessary stops list next time I'm in Amsterdam.
  • They only open until 6pm everyday, unlike FOAM. It is small. When I visited it, there were two exhibitions. It’s just like stepping into a house not a museum. The photos were hanged in different rooms of the house but the space was still so large for the photos that I felt I was looking more at the walls not the photos. Also the fact that they placed the tags so far away from the photos made me feel like they were trying to fill up the space.
