A Visit to House Marseille

Located on the Keizers­gracht 401 is House Marseille, Museum for Photography, which opened in 1999. The residence was built around 1665 for French merchant Isaac Focquier. The museum has 13 exhibition spaces and a restored room in Louis XIV style. On the façade is a stone tablet depicting a map of the French seaport Marseille.

The original 17th century layout of the house (front, court­yard, back and garden) is still largely intact. There is impressive stucco­work on the ceiling of the Entrance Hall and the Garden Room contains a beautiful ceiling painted by Jacob de Wit (1695-1754).
