The black & white photo exposition "Genesis" of Sebastiäo Salgado is very impresive. It's very beautiful. You need at least half day to visit this museum if you want to see the exposition of all 4 photographers.

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...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.
