  • Free access to this small Museum next to the tourist office. Very quick visit (1 hour max) unfortunately little to see, there is more potential on the history of Nicephorus. Staff (I was prevented to go take a picture of the view from the top floor staircase spiral!); probably of somewhat strict instructions :-)

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • I often go to the Museum! I find very interesting exhibitions! The scenic side is always very well highlighted! Bravo! To the team.
