Free tour in Dutch Sign Language - Brassaï
Photography is best discovered in your own language, which is why we offer tours taught by museum educators who are deaf themelves.

Foam is the first museum in the Netherlands to regularly schedule tours in Dutch Sign Language (SLN). During the tours in SLN you will view the current exhibitions in a group of at most 15 people. Our deaf museum educator will ask you questions, challenging you to really look closely at the work. The tour in SLN at Foam offers a unique way for the deaf and hard of hearing to discuss photography in their own language.
