The museum was small but very nice . If you're someone who likes looking at old things that don't exist anymore, it's worth a visit . Maybe the price is a bit too much compared to other attraction, but I was ok with shelling it out. The guide was really sweet (even though she was slightly hasty in explaining things).... More

Had a great many photographic artifacts that is a good place for photographers and camera buffs. Some history mixed in the how to of early photography. Insightful and intelligent in the way the subject was handled. Not sure if it would be good for those not interested in photography.

It's not the biggest or the best but around southeast Asia, it has some good collections. Pay attention to the closing hour. I had to come back the next day to visit this museum.

Not the easiest of museums to find, down a side street, but as SS we got in for 10rm. Nice little cafe, food average price, nice curry puff and chocolate cake..... Yummy. Worth a visit if you are in the area and of course have an interest in photography.
