Spend a lovely afternoon here with my friends. Also nice cafe on site. If you like photography go and see this museum. Changing exhibits, so check beforehand if they show something you like.

Interesting few photo galleries can spend a few hours looking at them and reading the information next to them. Was cheap to get in at only 3 Euro too.

We love photography so had to visit the Fotomuseum. We are glad we did as we spent a couple hours looking at the images. Exhibits change all the time so check their website for up-to-date information.

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.

We went to visit the 'Europe, what else' exposition, mostly because of the Henry Cartier Bresson pictures. There's a good amount of his pictures, showing his specific style.
