As one of the Founders, I would like to Welcome to the first Parisian museum entirely dedicated to iconic cameras.

Nested within the mythical Studio Harcourt, this one-of-a-kind museum invites you to a fascinating journey through a century of photography. Discover some of the most iconic cameras ever produced through an experience that’s aesthetic, playful, informative, and a bit nostalgic.

Along this route, you’ll encounter 99 cameras, some from legendary brands like Leica, Hasselblad, or Zeiss Ikon, but you’ll also discover lesser-known gems of design and technology that have paved the way for the cameras we use today.

Whether you’re an analogue photography enthusiast, a history buff, or just curious, we invite you to join us on this journey through the world of iconic vintage cameras.

As you make your way through the museum, take the opportunity to explore Studio Harcourt, an Parisian iconic institution and a witness to photographic history since 1937.

The 99 cameras on display belong to the Benincasa collection, spanning from the early 20th century to the onset of digital photography in the 1990s

Gianpaolo Benincasa was an unreasonable collector who devoted over half a century to amassing rare cameras worldwide. His efforts resulted in an incredibly eclectic collection of more than 2,000 pieces.

Vintage Camera Collectors
His son Federico created this museum to continue his Father’s legacy and share his remarkable collection.

Visiting the collection is entirely free but visitors can support the museum through an innovative NFT patronage system. The 99 Cameras Museum is the world’s first museum where visitors can acquire exclusive digital doubles of all the exhibited cameras and own a “piece” of the collection.
