  • Museum of photography. little old-fashioned set up but informative. A lot of display cases with souvenirs with photo imprint. For the elderly are a nostalgic reminder. for the youth there is not much going on. prominently in each Hall is a guard, it may help if you have any questions or explanation for carrying articles is going to be tricky, most of it is behind glass.

  • I go there almost every year and it is always a pleasure. There are new and temporary exhibitions are very good. Until mid-September there is exposure on Kodak, it's great to see ads from the 1950s to the 1970s... go ahead it's free!

  • Fantastic museum for photography lovers. Good mix between old antique technics and exhibitions of contemporary photography
  • The Museum that all photograph buffs have to visit in this town where the first photograph was taken in 1830! The first five cameras in the world on constant exhibit! Regular major exhibitions!
  • Well worth the visit. Informative and well put together. Stare at the very first camera apparatus with Niepce and Daguerres signature and just think how far we've come in photography since then.
  • Museum not to be missed for any amateur or professional photography. The exhibitions are to be seen and clear for visitors. Masterpieces of the technological development of photography to discover!
