This place is not really up to being worth visit. Too messy and not up to what it could be. I had a feeling of " is that all there is? " Some good ideas but no real dedication to the art of photography.

Its nothing extra to see there, but if you have time you can visit this museum, has some nice pictures. Liked the modern pictures from 19-20th century,and the cameras exhibited there as well.

Museum hosted in an ancient cloister depicting the history of photopraphy from the early beginnings to modern age. Awesome rooms and a very reasonable price. The museum café is a peaceful place before having a stroll in the parc.

Nice museum. Totally worth the 7 euro ticket. It is located in a monastery, what gives the museum a lot of charm. What i didn't like is that photos didn't have English explanation. For us non French speakers quite difficult. That is photography but sometimes...More
