    Our visit, July 2015

    After having had a rest at Wheeler’s (Please see review.) we were ready to explore Love Lane in the heart of George Town, Penang, Malaysia and the surrounding area. We saw signs for the Camera Museum and decided spontaneously to visit it.

    It was shortly after Ramadan, so there were discounts and special offers everywhere, including at the Camera Museum. We received two tickets for the price of one at 20 MYR (ca. 4.20 Euro or 4.75 USD).

    The museum is small, but has some rare cameras like Leica, Russian and Belarussian cameras to be viewed here.

    There was also a section showing some of the most impressive press photographs over the years.

    Other parts dealt with how cameras work and another one had spy cameras. It wasn’t boring at all and didn’t take too long to explore. There was also a darkroom to be discovered by visitors.

    Staff is very passionate, knowledgeable and willing to answer questions or show visitors how things work.

    There is also a café and a gift shop, where we bought a t-shirt and got even a bit more off due to the vouchers that we received when buying our tickets. It's all good and memorable here for the right reasons.

    We would visit again, when in George Town and would recommend it to photographers.

    Would we recommend this museum to a friend? YES!
    Would we want to visit again this museum in our future? YES!
