The Swiss Camera Museum in Vevey displays cameras and photographs that date from the time of their invention to the present. The museum is housed in a historic building on the market square.
Swiss Camera Museum on the market square in Vevey was opened in 1979 and extended in 2001.

A wide range of equipment may be viewed here, everything from the camera obscura and the magic lantern to digital cameras. There are also photographs on display, especially prints from the early days of photography. Also provided are details of the history of some of the inventors who contributed to the development of photography.

In addition to the permanent collection, there are temporary exhibitions on display all year round. To ensure that all visitors get their money’s worth, there are also games, texts and special installations for our younger guests.
