Found out very last minute about Foam but so glad we went. A beautiful building with amazing photography displayed throughout. Very interesting and thought providing. Had a hot chocolate and piece of cake in the cafe which was lovely. Came out feeling very inspired!!

If you like photography and/or contemporary art you shouldn’t miss this! I Loved it! They exhibited young emerging artists as well as world top artists. I enjoyed every second of my very long visit her! And don’t forget to buy their art magazine.

The Foam museum offers multiple floors of photos and has a cafe if you're in need of some food or drink. You can check their website to see if what the exhibit is.

I decided to visit on my own as my wife isn’t interested in photography. So glad I did, as I’m sure my wife would had a different opinion. Whilst some of the presented work was easy to lose oneself in, some of the exhibits left...More
