“My favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

This was my favorite museum from the ones I visited. I learned so much with the expositions, I had a lot of fun. The only problem is that there is an elevator for invalid people that can only access 1/3 of the museum, I felt very sad because I wanted to see it all.

“Underated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Not as high profile as Foam, the other main photography musuem. This place concentrates on the process of production. Especially that old thing called film. Set in an old canal house you can wonder around in peace as there is no crowds.

“Excellent photographic gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Well worth the visit although be aware they do change their exhibitions regularly. When I was there it was a special on Russia and Sochi. There are also many other rooms containing works by other photographers. They add descriptions and the photographers thoughts to the titles which helps you visualise.
The second major display was on the Northern Irish troubles. Very thought provoking too.

Go for a different perspective on what can be happening around the world that you wouldn't necessarily see in a newspaper or magazine.
