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.

Gibbon Många timmar flöt förbi där på golvet till regnskogen. Jag hängde med två gibbonsyskon så tiden var inte långsam; dagar gick – en, två, tre – innan de medgav att bli porträtterade. Plötsligt hände det. Jag hade blivit ett med miljön och de förstod vad jag ville. Borneo #silvergelatin #analog
