Do you like paintings, but does photography really get your juices flowing, then there’s only one museum you should go: Foam. With over 200,000 visitors a year, this is by far the most popular photography museum in the country. The walls have works by both world-famous photographers and young talents on display.
Foam is a museum you can visit several times a year without getting bored. There’s no permanent collection and about sixteen exhibits a year on average. Via air bridges, covered courtyards and all kinds of stairwells, you discover all sorts of aspects of photography: from contemporary to historic and from autonomous to applied. In addition to the works by famous photographers, young upcoming image makers are offered a stage in the museum or in the Foam Magazine.
Nice to know
Have an empty wall in your home? At Foam Editions, on the third floor of the museum, you can buy (signed) prints or photobooks of well-known photographers and newly discovered talents at attractive prices.
