I really enjoyed the exhibition at the Fotomuseum, which was about the interaction of nature and the artificial. Some of it was engrossing, some of it gross - a really well curated set of thought provoking pieces. The exhibition filled the whole gallery space, across all floors, and there was no permanent collection on display, so a visitor might be best to check out in advance what is on show. The staff on the ticket sales desk were not very helpful or friendly, which was in striking contrast to the Gemeentemuseum next door. Because the doors into the main exhibition space had been whitewashed out as part of the display, we missed the entrance to the second gallery on our first attempt to find it, and couldn't face going back to the grumpy helpdesk to ask where it was. It was worth persisting, however, as we really enjoyed the installations and video pieces we found there.
The restaurant was stacked out with several coachloads of pensioners, who were visiting the restaurant but not the exhibitions! You can buy a combination ticket for the fotomuseum and the Gemeentemuseum - if only we had been to the latter first, where the friendly staff would have mentioned this! Suprisingly, the staff claimed that there is no discount here for blind visitors, though wheelchair users should ask about discounts. Given the accessibility challenges of an art museum, this is not the most logical policy. In terms of mobility access, the museum was well laid out to enable access around and through the installed pieces.
