Being a photographer and a beginner at collecting vintage cameras I was like a kid in a candy store when I stopped by this collection. There are thousands of cameras in this museum, situated on the second floor of Michaels Camera Store in the city. All the well known brands are there such as Canon, Nikon, Leica and Minolta and there are plenty of names I'd never heard of. Includes limited edition gold plated cameras, spy cameras, lenses, film plus lots more! This exhibition is free so if you're in the city allow around half an hour to wander round the display cabinets.

The owner of this store doesn't just sell cameras - his forebears or he have collected them.

There's an amazing number of cameras, including a Japanese huge machine gun camera. I didn't fully understand that exhibit.

It's well lit and open until 2100 on Fridays.
