The Huis Marseille photography museum has been located in a 17th century canal house on the north bank of the Keisersgracht canal since 1999. In 2013 the museum was expanded to include the neighbouring building, providing it with a total of 14 exhibition spaces. The museum takes it's name from its building, built in 1655 for a wealthy French merchant, Isaac Focquier.

In addition to an exhibition programme, with generally four major exhibitions each year, the museum holds over 500 photographs. It has a special interest in contemporary Dutch, South African and Japanese work. These are not displayed permanently, but this collection can be viewed on the Huis Marseille website.

The museum also houses a library of photography books, and a shop selling books and postcards.

Huis Marseille is best reached by bicycle or public transport. Note: Amsterdam’s public transport network is about to change. Until 21 July: take tram 1, 2 or 5 from the Central Station and get off at the ‘Keizersgracht’ stop. After 21 July: take tram 1, 11 or 12 from the Central Station and get off at the ‘Keizersgracht’ stop. If you are traveling by car, you can park in Q-Park Europarking (Marnixstraat) or in parking garage Kalverstaat (Singel).

Due to the historical character of the two canal houses in which Huis Marseille is located, the museum is unfortunately not accessible by wheelchair.
