Visit: Huis Marseille, Museum for Photography, Keizersgracht 401, 1016 EK Amsterdam The Netherlands

Huis Marseille is Amsterdam's first photography museum. For over fifteen years now, Huis Marseille has been offering a varied exhibition program in which photography's rich history and diverse uses are given consideration. In addition to this, the museum also frequently shows work from its own collection of contemporary photography. Huis Marseille serves as a platform for the particularization of photography. The museum provides a view of the 'landscape' taking shape in photography; it presents photographers, artists and forms of photography which do justice to visual quality and which can be counted among the medium's major, but also lesser known, highlights. This stands in contrast to the profusion of photography as a mass medium. In terms of the installation of exhibitions, the unique structure of this house plays a significant role. Each of the thirteen exhibition spaces has its own specific character, yet all of them relate well to the work on display. The building still has the atmosphere of a 'gentleman's residence', but its rooms have now become galleries. A sense of warmth and intimacy has remained. Huis Marseille strives to make the visitor feel welcome in these home-like surroundings.

Sep 2019

The city pass helped us to really enjoy our time in Amsterdam . We were able to easily and quickly visit the Van Gogh gallery and the Rijksmuseum bypassing all lengthy queues. We were able to enjoy hopping on and off trams and see the city from a wonderful canal boat trip. Altogether it was such good value for money.

Sep 2019

We loved the I amsterdam card, it was easy to locate the building to pick up the card and be able to use the card for museums and transportation! No worries with cash just use the card.

Jun 2018

This was absolutely the best. Highly recommend for getting around and easy to use. Wonderful for skipping the lines and early entries.

Apr 2018

Great access to wonderful museums. Rent a bike and see Amsterdam and then pop into the places included on the pass.

Feb 2018

This card is a must. Access to all of the major museums as well as the dozens you stumble upon walking through Amsterdam. We also used it for public transportation across the city.

Feb 2018

Just as in other major cities, the I Amsterdam Card offers convenience and savings. We utilized our cards for free admission to museums and on public transportation. The visitors' center where we picked up our cards is conveniently located opposite the central train station. However, I would suggest that in the information supplied when ordering the card on the internet, a notation of the working hours be made. Might I suggest as well that a card for a longer time span be offered perhaps up to one week.

Feb 2018

Handy for getting around the dam.

Jul 2019

Valuable card for most travel options and admissions. All their slots for the Van Gogh were filled, so we had to book that online and pay, but they gave us the option of canceling the card. We still got our money's worth over the 96 hours.

Oct 2018

Be aware of the opening hours of the kiosk or shops, had to pay for train rides to go pick up the card because the airport kiosk was closed when flight arrived. Pay attention the list they provide as the attractions don't adverise. It is a good value but wish it included airport transfer.

Aug 2019

When I presented my voucher at the Amsterdam store I was informed it was not a valid voucher. We had to purchase more cards at the store. This pre-purchase was worthless.
