    We noticed the billboards outside to put faces to make pictures and walked. The Museum provides for a modest price a large collection of photographic equipment from the earliest beginnings to the present. Interesting especially the upper floors, with the history of photography during the war. By booking in advance there is a chance to experience the development of your photos in the darkroom. Given the vastness of the structure it is possible to enter and leave the Museum.

    A little disappointed despite a staff very friendly, I found it a little too noisy... a lot to read and less interactive

    Night tour one day of free museums. It was a little late, hospitality was average. We were offered to visit upside, no doubt to begin to prepare the closing. Mixed impressions but qq interesting info anyway, as these mini cameras created to be fixed under the belly of the pigeons: ancestors of drones? We stayed a little on our hunger.

    Very nice collection and cameras and photographic history. Not a huge camera collection, but the cameras were very nicely displayed and the historic timeline was accurate and quite interesting. Don't miss the video discussing various photographic processes on the lower floor. Not something you would want to take a child to, or an adult with little interest in photography. As a photographer for over 50 years I loved it!

    Not so big so don't plan too many hours for it, except if you're passionate into photography in general and expect to pay attention to every detail in their collection, which is huge. From beginnings of image capture and evolution of camera to digital and photo editing. However for the price it's preferable to attend on a free open-door day or with a voucher.
