If you love cameras,and taking photos-and watching photos -don´t miss this place!! For me it was most interesting "museum" I´ve been in long time.I didn´t get enough of watching the old cameras.I would have been ther for ages,if I wouldn´t know that my husband had allready seen enough..He likes museums too,but he doesn´t love cameras like I do.I went there saying"my grandfather had like this one","my father had this one","this was my first own camera!!"(witch I had when I was about 5 years old..)
There was also photo-exhibitions.One was little wired,but most were interesting,also very old photos.
The house itself has been a prison from 1961 to 1974 and a courthouse,officer of justice and Portos military governor and so on.
While walking out from last stairways,look up.Ceiling-window is beautyful.
