Tucked away within a hotel in Bukit Bintang is a hidden treasure — a museum dedicated to vintage cameras

Located within Gold3 Boutique Hotel, the Vintage Camera Museum may be modest in size, but it offers an intriguing collection of vintage cameras and photography equipment that provide a glimpse into the history of photography.

The museum is free to enter and open to the public during the hotel's operating hours.

It's a two-minute walk to Pavilion KL and a 15-minute walk to Petaling Street.

Visitors can explore a variety of vintage cameras, from early box cameras to more recent models

The museum also has a collection of typewriters and film rolls, providing a fascinating insight into the evolution of capturing and preserving memories.

Gold3 Boutique Hotel was born from the founder's personal journey, rooted in a humble upbringing and a deep love for travel and exploration.

Faced with the dilemma of choosing between decent accommodation and capturing memories with a film camera, the founder's dream of combining both luxuries remained unfulfilled due to financial constraints.

This regret fuelled the creation of a unique concept — a stylish and affordable camera-themed hotel in Kuala Lumpur's Bukit Bintang district, offering travellers the opportunity to capture tangible memories without sacrificing comfort.

Here's where the Vintage Camera Museum is located:

2nd Floor,
Lot B5, Fahrenheit 88,
179, Jalan Bukit Bintang,
55100 Kuala Lumpur,
