    As already confirmed by many others, if you love photography or just want to spend an hour of your time to something curious and interesting, don't waste Room Museum in Penang. The girl who runs it is incredibly good and passionate in explaining all display, with various interactive activities. All in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended, even for the price (20RM per person for adults).

    A place where all camera lover must visit. This is where analog cameras rested and enable us to recall our memory back to the film and prints old days. I like the 60 years old Siow Seong Studio exhibition hall the most as it brings back the old style of photo studio in Penang. Thanks for the hard work.
