“Camera galore”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

Visited this place with moderate expectations but was blown away by the private tour we received. Very informative, made me realise many things i forgot i knew about the process of taking pictures. They also do a great cup of coffey in the Café.

“The amazing world of cameras!”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

The first museum visited in George Town...and we just got stuck in there! The place and atmosphere, the spirit of history and wonderful exhibits and... especially friendly and helpful tour guide... all those made our visit to this place very nice, informative and entertaining. My kid could play with some cameras and that kept him involved. Highly recommend to visit the museum to everybody not only to those ones interested in cameras! They have a nice souvenir shop downstairs and a small photo gallery worth to be seen! Will visit the museum again if I ever happen to visit Penang))

“Something different”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

If you're interested in photography, which I am, or even if your not, it's an interesting place to visit, definitely something different.

“Cute and informative!”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

It was a cute and nice place in one of the best parts of town, you can both get a look at history and buy camera themed things in the giftshop. They also have a cafe.
