This is an excellent visit for people keen on photography and cameras. The lady guide is knowledgeable and helpful and gets you involved with taking some photos using your phone and some very old equipment. Recommended visit in KL!!

This is a hidden gem in the touristy heart of George Town. The museum is clearly a passion project and you can't help but get caught up in the enthusiasm of the curators. All visitors join a tour and are guided through the history of cameras. There's a wide range of exhibits and throughout the tour you are encouraged to use some of them to create your own unique photos with your phone. The museum is small and you are likely to only need an hour or less for your visit so no excuse not to visit.

Went in on a whim as we were passing by and we were so happy that we decided to check this place out. The tour guide (May) was lovely and so passionate it made the tour really special. The stuff inside the museum was really cool too. I’d definitely recommend it if you have any interest in photography.

What an incredible collection of cameras! Fantastic little museum hidden away in a shop house. Given a guided tour by a very enthusiastic lady. She had such knowledge about the different types of camera and the history of the development. Made sure we made the most of the visit by showing us how to use some of the older models. Tickled pink that they had an Olympus Trip 35 from the 70s which I used for all my early travels. Museum well worth half an hour of anyone,s time.

Amazing museum. Was given a tour around but the lovely woman who works there. She was so informative and enthusiastic as well as giving general suggestions for things to do around Penang. She was truly the highlight of my visit!

This place has all the elements to become a good attraction for the city. The topic is fascinating and the collection is worth seeing.

You will experience a darkroom, and having pictures taken with your camera of images taken from the collection’s cameras, nice trick. They have a camera obscura, cameras for cinematography, a portrait camera with studio set up, and you get to see large and medium format cameras as well as SLRs and digital ones. Donations of old cameras are accepted.

The guide was charming and knowledgeable.

Went to this museum looking to see some cool cameras and was blown away by the amount there is too see and learn. The woman who runs the museum (I didn’t get her name) gave us a guided tour and was extremely knowledgeable about the whole history of photography from its inception to the present day. There were multiple of examples of many types of cameras as well as opportunities to look through the viewfinders of many types, something I’ve never seen before in a camera museum, and was definitely a highlight. Definitely a must see for anyone remotely interested in photography on their visit to Penang.

I really enjoyed this museum! May was a wonderful guide and was very knowledgeable about cameras, and the museum did a good job of showing off a wide range of cameras as well as some interesting tidbits such as an exploded (taken apart) model as well as a camera obscura and the power of a 1000x zoom lens. Would recommend to both photographers and non photographers!

Since my dad and I love photography, we are interested to go and see. But it's not only for people like us as my other family members did enjoy their time there too. We can experience and see the changes and how the cameras evolved from a long time ago to modern ones. Indeed another type of our attractions.
