Swiss Museum Of Cameras, Vevey Reviews

  • Great museum for photography taking you through the ages up to modern day. Two stars lost since no English throughout whole exhibition and not many photos or commentary on photographers.

  • Very nice collection and cameras and photographic history. Not a huge camera collection, but the cameras were very nicely displayed and the historic timeline was accurate and quite interesting. Don't miss the video discussing various photographic processes on the lower floor. Not something you would want to take a child to, or an adult with little interest in photography. As a photographer for over 50 years I loved it!

  • Not so big so don't plan too many hours for it, except if you're passionate into photography in general and expect to pay attention to every detail in their collection, which is huge. From beginnings of image capture and evolution of camera to digital and photo editing. However for the price it's preferable to attend on a free open-door day or with a voucher.

  • If you are into photography, it is a must. Great selection of historic cameras plus good explanation.

  • Very interesting museum for people who are interested in the history of cameras.
