Asia Camera Museum (GPS: 5.417705, 100.329240) is a private museum dedicated to celebrating photographic equipment and photography. It is housed on the upper floor of 10 Burmah Road, the building which once house Kuan Look Bakery in the Seventies. The group floor is occupied by Canon Image Square.
The Asia Camera Museum should appeal to camera buffs, people who are particularly into cameras, especially vintage cameras and the history of photography. There's a whole lot of old cameras to look at. For example, you can go through the different models of Canon SLRs from the pre-digital to the digital age. Then there's an array of medium format cameras and the entire set up of the Siow Seong Photo Studio, complete with dark room.
