This museum was the first national institution dedicated exclusively to exhibiting photography. It keeps around 350,000 vintage prints, including those printed with albumen, bromide, on salted paper, calotypes, ambertypes and stereoscope. It unites the collections of Malandrini, Palazzoni, Zannier, Gabba and holds copies of the signatures of the greatest photographers of the 19th century including Alinari, Primoli, Peretti Griva and foreigners like MacPherson, Fenton and Von Gloeden. There are also many cameras, lenses and other objects from the history of photography including an impressive collection of both foreign and Italian photographic albums. The museum organizes temporary exhibitions, normally in collaboration with the Alinari archives.
