I would recommend this experience to anyone interested in saving the past with pictures. The Gentlemen was great at explaing the different ways pictures were developed beginning in the 1840 until the present day. He has a lot to show a person and the tour is very well done. You can ask questions and the photos are something to see.

This was such a fun experience. As a fan of photography I truly enjoyed every minute of it the tour. My husband who doesn’t have an interest in photography said “it was a very fun and cool experience. 100% would recommend.

The Photo Antiquities: Museum of Photographic History is a true hidden gem in Pittsburgh. They have hundreds of historic photos, cameras, video-cameras, and equipment that you can see nowhere else in the world. Bruce is a very attentive, respectful, and knowledgeable guide for the museum. We cannot wait to go back again! 10/10

About Photo Antiquities: Museum of Photographic History

With Victorian-style decor, period music, and a treasure trove of antique photographs, the Photo Antiquities: Museum of Photographic History evokes a period in time long before selfie sticks and smartphone cameras. That period spans 100 years, starting in 1839 when photography first became commercially viable. The museum's exhibits have ranged from the macabre (Victorian post-mortem photos) to the whimsical (a collection of pet photographs called "A Cute and Curious Collection of Canine Characters").
