About Us: The Camera Museum actually began life in 1999 as the Tang Café in the heart of central London’s historic Museum Street opposite the British Museum. Created and run by the Tang brothers, Patrick Tang and Adrian Tang, the café battles in a highly competitive market. Patrick, the elder of the joint owners and a keen camera collector, decides to open a camera business in the basement to complement the clink of coffee cups upstairs. Patrick has built up a collection of camera equipment over the years. His collection includes high-end brands, ranging from Hasselblad to Rolleiflex, Leica to Nikon. Aperture - Patrick’s camera business - quickly establishes a solid reputation as a trustworthy and reliable camera dealership. Eventually, the camera dealership and the coffee shop roll themselves into one business - based at a uniquely atmospheric and creative place, frequented by photographers, artists, writers, students and tourists. In 2012, Patrick opens a dedicated Aperture store at Rathbone Place, near to London’s famous Oxford Street. The new store mainly specialises in Leica and Nikon equipment - and also offers a camera repair service as well as film processing, scanning and printing. Meanwhile, back at Museum Street, Adrian establishes the Camera Museum. This incorporates a true rarity - a specialist Hasselblad, Rolleiflex, Fujifilm dealership and Repair Service in the heart of London. And, as always, the ever-friendly coffee shop continues to offer freshly prepared food and drink all day. The Camera Museum now includes a fascinating Museum Gallery that exhibits a comprehensive timeline of cameras of all descriptions and makes, dating from the 1800s to the forefront of the current digital age. An estimated 40,000 different type of cameras have been made throughout the ever-changing history of photography. The Camera Museum will preserve cameras from every era and proudly show them to the public. Admission Fee: Adult £1, Free for Children under 10. Your support will help us to improve our collection. The Camera Museum is a member of the Association of Independent Museums (AIM).

Visited the Hasselblad Centre in Gothenburg at the weekend..
Lest we forget
Fuji X-M1 with Voigtlander Nokton 40mm attached via helicoid FX/LM adapter..
MUST HAVE experience for any photographer! One of the best places in the heart of London: welcoming and helpful stuff, cozy atmosphere, fresh juices and home made food, well organised display and and silent movies viewings to come! Well done! will return!
Wonderful refuge... nice to return there again today. Manual cameras, Hasselblad, great coffee. Highly recommended :-))
