Film fanatics will love Penang’s first and only camera museum. The well-curated galleries span the millennium and display a variety of cameras—like pinhole and large and medium formats, now defunct film options, and even a working dark room that showcases the age-old technique of processing film. Travelers say the museum is small, but agree it’s the perfect stop for travelers with extra time on the island. Option guided tours are ideal for camera enthusiasts looking to learn more about the museum’s impressive collection.
The museum is located at 49 Lebuh Muntri in Penang near the Choong Fatt Tze mansion. It is open daily from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. Entrance to the museum costs RM20 for adults and RM10 for students and senior citizens.
