It’s a perfect destination if you are a photography enthusiast or just an inquisitive soul or want to spend time at one of it’s kind state-of-the-art museums located in Gurgaon. In fact, Gurgaon takes immense pride in this unique milestone that opened again on August 1 after the lockdown was lifted, following very strict Covid precautionary protocols.
Crowdfunded and with investment from the Government of Haryana, Museo Camera, the Center for Photographic Arts is fast emerging as a must visit to experience a complete photography experience – the art, science and history of photography. You walk in to find antique cameras from over 100 countries. Aditya Arya, the founder director and the brainchild behind this exceptional art and cultural hub, says, ” I have travelled to so many museums the world over, and wanted to establish one here dedicated to photography. This is one of it’s kind in the entire South Asia.” The museum promises to take you on a journey of photography right from 1800s to now when technology has made turn around indents into this evolving art.
I have to admit that when I visited the Museo, I was completely awestruck by the sheer variety of camera, and everything related to photography stocked under one roof. Not to forget, the most delectable pizza I have ever had at their restaurant, the Fig. They are running many photography short duration courses now. Also there is a Museo shop which has collectibles ready to be shipped online too. It’s a must visit! See it to believe it!
