We are pleased to welcome you.


Discover the world of 
photography & camera history.


Our concern is to offer the public an insight into the fascinating history of photography and the emergence of camera technology. After building up the archive, the Cultural Foundation has considered expanding the Photo Museum once again and adding an exhibition on the 1st floor of the Kulturfabrik.

Whether you are curious, interested in technology or nostalgic, the combination of archive and exhibition offers a suitable experience for different interest groups.


On the second floor, we offer you a tour that takes you through the history of photography, gives you interesting facts and invites you to marvel.

Between curiosities, Big Pictures and central German achievements, a unique insight into the work of the preceding weeks and months awaits you.


The archive with more than 1000 cameras, photographic materials, technology, printed matter and accessories, offers a wealth of material for enthusiasts and camera fans.

The collection from private ownership shows with great attention to detail the development and creation of the camera. Chronologically and staged, there are many interesting exhibits from Agfa to Zeiss.
