A wide range of equipment may be viewed here, everything from the camera obscura and the magic lantern to digital cameras. There are also photographs on display, especially prints from the early days of photography. Also provided are details of the history of some of the inventors who contributed to the development of photography.

An exhibition on the work of Queen in the 1970s has been staged in the world-famous Montreux Mountain Studios at Casino Barrière Montreux, where the band created a major portion of their most successful albums.
The exhibits include numerous memorabilia, such as the handwritten original versions of the songs or instruments. The centerpiece of the exhibition is the original sound studio that was used by the band and where Freddie Mercury recorded his last songs.
