The museum is hosting a black and white exhibition of contemporary photography taken during and after WW2 by a Czech prtographer/traveller. The shots capture moments, not necessarily people and they are interesting through the choice of angles and even topics. They are taken all across Europe and Israel and they put the spotlight on the everyday moments of joy... and... More

I went there in July with a friend, I was impressed particularly by the Frans Lanting collection (nature, animals, etc). I think it is nice also for people that are not particularly knowledgeable about photography. As a bonus, the employees there were giving away free postcards with some of the photographs in the museum. The quality was so good (of... More

We were glad we persevered in finding this excellent museum, which had great exhibition on show. Some wonderful photos. It was a pity that some rooms were closed due to works being hung.

The Frans Lanting exposition due until the beginning of September is absolutely amazing and a must see. Splendid pictures of landscapes and animals from all 7 continents.

First off: I love the photos of the Frans lanting exposition. It was however not great due to poor lighting (lots of shades of fellow visitors). The other 3 expositions where waste of time, and did not caught my attention.

Someone who likes photography it's a must go. It's is amazing place to spend a few hours in. It is a large selection with many different themes of photos all nicely group. Unfortunately i came a little late to see the hole selection (1.30 hour). But i will surely come back.

On the south side of Rotterdam (a booming neighborhood full of catchy restaurants and the art house cinema), you will find the Photography Museum, housed in a modern building. I went there several times before, but now I went for the exhibition by Frans Lanting, which was very good. Both old and new work alike. The staff in the museum... More
