Really interested exhibition to do when roaming around George's town. The guided tour takes around 30 minutes, then you can try out some of the old camera and look into more detail if you like. Very friendly staff. Good gateway from the more touristic places.

If you have an interest in photography, this small museum is well worth a visit. It preserves the contents of an historic photos studio. Displays are good staff friendly and knowledgeable.
