  • Small Museum that showcased a lot of different type of photography equipment from the different eras. Despite being such a small museum, I have to say that they have a huge range of collection of equipment ranging from Twin-lens reflex camera, spy camera to the first ever DSLR camera. The museum also showcases the old photography shops that use in Penang. I was also very impressed with the staff on duty during my visit, she was very knowledgeable and willing to share her during the tour. If you are someone that is interested in photography and got time to spare, you can check this place out!
