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 three 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 Louis XIV-style period room. The museum also has a library, a specialized photo book shop, and a tranquil canal garden which are all open to visitors.

Cultuur Ferry

Cultuur Ferry is a hop-on-hop-off ferry service that offers the opportunity to explore Amsterdam’s museums. The ferry service operates on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11 am to 16 pm and stops at six stops near many museums and cultural institutions, including Huis Marseille. A ferry leaves every 30 minutes from Central Station. Tickets cost €23,50, including a museum guide on board, and are valid for 24 hours. Please note, the ticket gives access to the Cultuur Ferry only. Tickets for museums should be purchased separately through the ticketing of the respective museum. For more information, visit the Cultuur Ferry website.


Due to the historical character and monument status of the two canal houses housing Huis Marseille, the museum is unfortunately not fully accessible for the differently-abled. Because of the many staircases, the galleries are particularly difficult to access for wheelchair and walker users. The same applies to a children’s pram, which you can temporarily leave at reception during your visit. If you need an escort to visit the museum, we will grant them free access.

Pets are not allowed, with the exception of registered assistance dogs. Such dogs must wear a vest or harness bearing the name of the school where they were trained. In addition, the dog’s handler must be able to present the dog’s appropriate identification card with the required information on it.

For more information on the museum’s accessibility, email, or call +31 (0) 20 531 89 83.
