Dutch Photo Museum

The Dutch Photo Museum offers photographers a platform. The museum collects and presents photography that reflects on the world. And watches over the photographic heritage of now and the future.

History of the Photo Museum

The Dutch Photo Museum (Statedam entrance) has managed a large part of the photographic heritage in the Netherlands since the late 1980s. The museum also organizes international exhibitions on photography, guided by the strong documentary tradition and its innovation. Sometimes a social or artistic theme is central, other times an internationally iconic photographer.

The Photo Museum is located in the striking industrial building Las Palmas, once the workshop building of the Holland-America Line, which was completely renovated in 2006. The location is located on the Wilhelmina pier on the Kop van Zuid, in the middle of cultural hotspots and other symbols of the Holland America Line such as Hotel New York and Cruise Terminal Rotterdam.


The Dutch Photo Museum is easily accessible by tram, metro (Wilhelminaplein stop) and water taxi. In the immediate vicinity there is paid parking for more than 500 cars.
