Visitor information

Huis Marseille is Amsterdam’s first photography museum. Since September 1999, the museum has been offering a rich and varied exhibition program that changes an average of four times a year. The exhibitions are shown in two seventeenth-century canal houses in which many original details are intact, such as opulent ceiling paintings, stucco work, marble, and a red period room in the style of Louis XIV. The museum also has a library, a specialized photo book shop, and a tranquil canal garden which are all open to visitors.
