  • Nicely renovated house with an old stylish atmosphere. The exhibition is interesting and nice, but it could benefit from a better guiding, better labeling and better arrangement. It is definitely a worthy element of a visit to Krumlov.
  • Amazing to explore how good photos can be taken with eqiupment of those times
  • Very bad. Only boring audioguides and no guided tour
  • I have been to this museum very recently and I totally recommend it. There you will be able to find a huge variety of negatives and photographs and also an intense history that is behind all these. If you are a photography lover or curious enthusiast this place is a must.
  • The narrative of the entire museum is excellent. It feels like time has stopped there and the museum has a soul! You just have to go in and feel it yourself.
