Asia Camera Museum, a Photography Lovers Heaven in Penang

If you can visit a tour in Penang, there are many interesting things that you can find. One of them is a museum with a variety of themes, ranging from history, art, and modern phenomena. One that is quite recommended is the Asia Camera Museum.

As the name implies, the Asia Camera Museum has hundreds of camera collections from time to time. You can even see camera units from the 1800s here. What a paradise for photography lovers!

A Colombian photography lover named Yolanda told us how she came to visit the Asia Camera Museum. And this is a unique story. Where he managed to win some money from Toto Macau bets on the official site, this Toto Macau game requires Yolanda to choose, guess and place numbers. And unexpectedly, the number he was betting on was the same as the number issued by the Bandar. Therefore he was entitled to get cash. From here, he bought plane tickets, booked hotels, and booked tickets to visit the museum.

Without further ado, let’s look at Yolanda’s story while taking a walk here.

# Located in The George Town Area

Asia Camera Museum houses old collections and various photographic equipment from several decades ago. Everything from lighting equipment to the dressing table can be seen here. The location is also very easy to reach because it is in the George Town area of ​​Malaysia.

The exact address is 71 Armenian Street, 10200, George Town, Penang, Malaysia. Once you arrive at a place that is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., you go up to the second floor. The entry ticket is only around RM15 to RM20.

# Collection of Old Cameras and Accessories

The Asia Camera Museum opened for the first time in early 2004. This place houses a collection of more than 1,000 cameras and their accessories. Some of them are very antique, and you may not have seen them before.

Not only from Malaysia, but several collectibles at the Asia Camera Museum were also imported from all over the world. The types also vary, from video recorders from the 1980s to old school cameras with large mirrors from the 1800s.

In addition, there are still some old products from Leica and Zeiss, two manufacturers who are certainly familiar to photography enthusiasts. You can also see some unique accessories such as lamps and others.

Oh yes, you don’t need to worry if you get around here because you will be accompanied by a guide. He will explain in detail about each collection on display. If something catches your eye, you can ask right away.

The Asia Camera Museum also has lots of cool angles that you can use as your photo background. One of them is the camera repair table, which is decorated with various repair equipment from the 60s. Taking pictures with the pose of fixing the camera here will certainly be interesting.

In addition, there is still an old photo studio spot, complete with a dressing table. This corner is decorated with several old photo collections, and there is even a photo that is claimed to be the oldest in Penang. Unfortunately, visitors are not allowed to take pictures because there is a copyright from the owner.

Not just looking, you can also try some old cameras that still work here. Very interesting.

# Dark Room

Another interesting spot that should not be missed is the Dark Room, aka the darkroom. This place is used to wash photos taken by analog cameras. A Traveler’s friend can get a little idea of ​​how the photo printing process was before the digital era.

As souvenirs, you can buy a variety of cute accessories. One that really caught my attention was the camera-shaped key chain. If the button is pressed, it can make a sound and flash like a real camera. The price is only RM20, you know.

That’s a little of my experience traveling at the Asia Camera Museum. For those of you who like photography or have a big interest in the history of technology, you can try stopping here. Guaranteed you will get many interesting and unforgettable experiences.
