To those who own the overprice-camera (DSLR), come and see the time tunnel and history of the camera. From the 2 meter long camera, until 3 cm camera. You will be amazed of these collections. Please don't bring your baby if you want to spend more time here.

Great to visit if you're in the neighbourhood and have 30 mins free.

The museum is laid out nicely on the upper floor, with well curated displays and quite a number of camera models to hold and test out. The Camera Obscura room was quite fun!

Just a small museum with nice gift shop. But it might be interesting only for those who are into the cameras. You can find and send nice postcards here!
