Housed in a juxtaposition of classic and modern architecture, the FOAM hosts a frequently changing contemporary exhibit, as well as a permanent collection of contemporary photographs. A visit here will have you upping your Instagram game - you might just turn into the FOAM’s next new talent!

Located on a pleasant century-and-a-half old canal, FOAM Photography Museum (FOtografiemuseum AMsterdam) blends its traditional interior with a modern exterior of chrome and glass. This avant-garde balance reflects the combination of the traditional and modern photographs and media showcased here.

With historical, informal, and contemporary photography and multimedia exhibitions that change every 2-4 months, you’re sure to be dazzled (as if by flash bulbs) on a visit here.

Walk through the history of photography from seasoned big-shots to up-and-comers. Techniques include formal portraiture, absurd still-lifes, and mixed-material hybrids; FOAM is a showcase for photography and photographers pushing the bounds of the form. It is - in a word - inspiring.

Not only will the FOAM make you want to turn your Instagram into your own exhibition space, it can actually help you on your journey to become the next Man Ray or Andy Warhol. The museum regularly organizes workshops, special tours, lectures, discussions, films, and other activities to encourage like-minded, passionate, and creative photography enthusiasts.
