Since 2003, when it expanded to mark its tenth anniversary, the Fotomuseum Winterthur has been one of the largest centres for photography in Europe. The museum's exhibitions and publications enjoy an excellent reputation worldwide.

The Fotomuseum Winterthur has hosted over one hundred exhibitions since its founding in 1993, dedicating itself to the medium of photography but also exploring how this intersects with other mechanical and electronic media for representing images. 

The museum allows the general public to enjoy photography and get to know photographers. 

It offers exhibitions, publications, guided tours, lectures and conferences, but also carries out research and helps to shape trends. The ever-growing private collection of the Fotomuseum can now also be viewed online
