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.

Image of the week

Huset til Friele

I dette gruppeportrettet ser vi en rekke representanter fra draggruppa Haus of Friele fra Bergen. Gruppa startet med et ønske om å skape et dragmiljø i Bergen og gruppa er oppkalt etter Kim Friele (1935-2021), som viet store deler av sitt liv til kampen for skeives rettigheter. Friele blir regnet blant de største forkjemperne for likestilling i Norge og er et forbilde for mange.
