DESCRIPTION
Huis Marseille is Amsterdam's first photography museum, situated at Keizersgracht 399+401 in two interconnected canal houses.
 
Mission
Huis Marseille serves as a platform for the particularization of photography. The museum provides a view of the 'landscape' taking shape in photography; it presents photographers, artists and forms of photography which do justice to visual quality and which can be counted among the medium's major, but also lesser known, highlights. This stands in contrast to the profusion of photography as a mass medium.
 
---

Huis Marseille, Museum for Photography, was opened on 18 September 1999. In its six exhibition rooms the museum presents new photo exhibitions every three months.

The layered structure of the house is very much suited to combining different exhibitions and highlighting the relationships between them.

The programme is diverse, with an emphasis on the visual quality of the works displayed. Huis Marseille covers a broad range of international photographic genres, including photography of artistic inspiration but also all imaginable forms of photography from past and present.

Work from the collection of Huis Marseille is also shown regularly.
