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.

There were a huge variety of cameras on display for everyone to see. Definitely gained experience and widened my horizons.

The staff were quite friendly and this place makes a nice diversion and addition to the Armenian Street area.
Sadly, I can't give this too high a rating. The place makes me feel like a camera studio was wondering what to do with their old cameras and hit upon the idea of getting additional old unwanted cameras from other camera studios. This is then followed by making some copies of the Internet of some famous photos and there you are - a camera museum!
There's nothing wrong with that except the ticket price is too high and the place is not well - curated. We only spent 15 minutes there as there is only one main room (not including the dark room partition) and there is not enough information on why each camera is special historically. Had the ticket price been half of what it is, I would still be ok but as it is now, it feels like a lesser version of the other camera museum in Penang.
