  • Wow! What a fun place. These guys have so much stuff and are so knowledgeable you could spend hours there talking about cameras.
  • This is a one of a kind collection that anyone with an interest in photography should see.
  • This man is am amazing encyclopedia of knowledge...and the museum has thousands of pieces, dating back to the 19th century
  • Very interesting.
  • As a lover on small unique museums, this one is a real puzzle. This man has collected cameras for 40 plus years and has so many it is overwhelming. If you come to museum and just look at the displays, It will probably have little meaning. If the owner talks with you and does a tour, it will be one of the most fascinating museums you have ever seen, David Schwartz has more stories to tell than one can imagine. He will walk you through camera history, specialized cameras, and so many types that your brain will boggle from the stream of incredible information that seems to be endless. Some cameras I can remember from the over flow of information Camera from a Japanese fighter that bombed the Arizona at Pearl Harbor Spy Cameras used in James Bond Movies East German spy camera in a cigarette lighter box cameras that were given to all12 year olds in the 30's and the back story cameras used in space micro cameras huge 8 x 10 cameras prints of all sorts of types from the 1800 - 1900 period explanations of the equipment and how it was used original and rare prints and original editions and well I can't remember everything David said. He is friendly, engaging, inspiring, and overflowing with stories, information, and history. He is a treasure and the cameras need his tales.
