Here we can see a collection of museum organizer photos. We can also buy a yogurt-like snack in the café inside the museum. This Museum is suitable for photography enthusiasts.
This is very bad TripAdvisor shows the wrong address. The museum moved in November 2017. This costs us to match time more »
Good museum about the study of photography. Here we can find camera from 1900s until now. The entrance fee is for RM 10 and the services is quite good. You can have tour guide for better experience but sadly it's only the manager of the place when I visited this place
Great tour guide. It's an interesting museum. Learn few things about camera and photography history. 😊 They have models of how old camera works. As of this date, the entrance fee is Rm20 per person.
