  • 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.
