If you are into photography, this is a must!

It's not the biggest or the best but around southeast Asia, it has some good collections. Pay attention to the closing hour. I had to come back the next day to visit this museum.

Not the easiest of museums to find, down a side street, but as SS we got in for 10rm. Nice little cafe, food average price, nice curry puff and chocolate cake..... Yummy. Worth a visit if you are in the area and of course have an interest in photography.

Here is one of the must point that we wanted to visit. And we finally came across the Camera Museum by chance. However we didn't get into the museum because we thought that the fee is not worthwhile our time to spent there.

We dropped by after visiting the cat café next to it, and was pleasantly surprised by the array of camera exposed, the different rooms such as the spy room, obscura room ect. You can even grab coffee and cake at its little café, oh and one the street arts is just at its entrance, don't forget to click a picture

An engaging and educational experience, in a place well maintained with love and passion. The flow is logical, and the exhibits well-varied, with little personal touches throughout and clever, immersive touches.
