“GREAT photography museum!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

I can't believe no one has written about this amazing museum! Great for ANYONE interested in photography and/or history. For only $10 you get to see hundreds of old cameras of various different formats, even old movie cameras! You get to see tintypes, daguerreotypes, albumen prints, carte de visites, old mug shots and old photographs of Pittsburgh! There is SO much to see and totally worth the money!!!
