This place is very unique. Open limited hours, has rotating photo exhibits in its gallery, sells consignment photo gear, massive library upstairs. Wonderful museum. Photo loves shouldn't pass it up. Owner/curator Nicholas is a fountain of knowledge and excellent conversationalist.

Small space that features monthly changing exhibits mostly of local photographers but also nationally known and others. Always interesting. Run by a photographer. Center also runs photo workshops.

Small but worthwhile. Museum of cameras and photo equipment. Rotating exhibitions of local, regional and national photography. Classes, library, events— it's added a lot to the srtistic scene in Troy.
