Shortly before his death in 2004, Berlin-born Helmut Newton donated over 1,000 of his nude and fashion photographs to the city and provided funds towards the creation of a new gallery. The Museum of Photography, doubling as home for the Helmut Newton Foundation (www.helmutnewton.com), was the result. In a former casino, it's now the largest photographic gallery in the city. The first two floors are given over to Newton's work, parcelled up in a series of alternating exhibitions. Further space is devoted to temporary shows by other photographers.

We had time to kill before heading to a gig and so opted to try out this photography museum which was located fairly near to our hotel.
It's a large building with a huge entrance staircase but was lacking something ambience wise that I couldn't quite put my finger on.
Obviously the exhibitions that are on here are different throughout the year but whilst we were there they had an interesting exhibition about cctv. I quite enjoyed it but left with a vague feeling that in many respects they'd missed a few tricks and it could have been a lot better.
Price wise it was 10 Euros for adults. I've paid more so no complaints in that regard.
Overall...it didn't rock my world but it was enjoyable. If you've done all of the classic tourist sites and you love photography then maybe this place is worth a shot
