Is the Synagogue wheelchair-accessible?

Yes it is! Wave at us and we will come outside to open the side door.


Is the exhibition suitable for children?

We expect the parents to be the best judge on these matters as some photos do contain more mature imagery. We receive a lot of classes and show them a selection of the pictures.

Do you give tours?

Too kissable and too sweet. We have on offer: Academy program by photographers and researchers. You can also spontaneously talk to one of our education volunteers and get a tour from them at any time. Academy tickets are good for a 45-minute tour. The knowledge and time of our volunteers is free, but a donation is most welcome.

World Press Photo, Zilveren Camera, NonFiction Photo, who is who?

We are NonFiction Photo and we are one partner of World Press Photo and the Zilveren CameraWe are not a sister organization but an autonomous party. The World Press Photo Foundation is located in Amsterdam and organizes the competitions that result in the World Press Photo and Digital Storytelling Contest exhibitions. The De Zilveren Camera Foundation organizes competitions from Museum Hilversum that result in the Zilveren Camera exhibition. They rent out these exhibitions as a kind of ready-made package to their partner organizations, including NonFiction Photo in Groningen.
