The museum was founded in 1995 when the Norwegian Government bought the collections that belonged to Preus Fotomuseum, a private museum. The Norwegian State is the owner of the museum. In May 2001 the museum moved into Magasin A at Karljohansvern in Horten, about one hours drive from Oslo. The interior decoration is drawn by Architect Sverre Fehn. The collections contains photographies, ather kind of images, cameras and other technical equipment that shed light on the history of photography. There is a wide representation of the international history of photography in the image collection. Preus museum's library holds international standard.

3/7: Da jeg bestemte meg for å fotografere på daglig basis ble mennesker i det offentlige rom og spesielt mennesker på kollektiv transport et naturlig valg. Har en gående serie kalt "Frenzy silence". Tittelen taler for seg selv mtp hva jeg forsøker å formidle, men viktigst for meg personlig er den daglige treningen med å holde det fotografiske blikket aktivt. @_a.i.m_
