huis marseille (amsterdam)

Huis Marseille, located on the beautiful Keizersgracht, is one of my favorite museums in Amsterdam. Housed in a 17th century canal house (yes, another one, see previous posts on Museum Van Loon and Museum Willet-Holthuysen), Huis Marseille is a small photography museum that opened its doors in 1999 (and was Amsterdam’s first museum to present photographic exhibitions on a permanent basis). Click here for more about the history of the museum.

It’s forbidden to take photographs in the museum, so I thought I would give you an impression of the beautiful garden (another one to add to the Quiet Amsterdam list!)…

On display right now are the exhibitions ‘Siebe Swart: Land of Air and Water‘ and ‘Naoya Hatakeyama: Natural Stories,’ both until 26 February. The Siebe Swart exhibition is really beautiful, I definitely recommend for anyone interested in the geography of the Netherlands or with the Dutch and their relationship with water (you can see a few photographs of Swart through the window in the photograph below)…

Huis Marseille is located on the Keizersgracht 401 and is open Tue-Sun from 11am to 6pm. Click for more Amsterdam Insights, published every Wednesday.
