  • After a visit to this museum everyone has movies in any way consumed belongs in my opinion to the general education. First the history is shown by picture and movie of the first Jr to the first movies. Here one learns too much about the technology is behind it and concludes with a series of films from the period 1890-1910 this part. The Herausforderng of actors, scenes and sound equipment is shown on the second floor. Here, the exhibition closes with a 4-monitor cinema on the Fillmszenen be shown parallel to technical topics.

  • First floor is an exhibition about how everything evolved to the movie technology we have today. Second floor is about various movies and their themes. Some very cool requisites are there like an Alien costume and a Darth Vader helmet. Further more some sketches and story boards. The third floor currently hosts an exhibition about 2001 A space odyssey. Everything is very well setup and presented. Only real downside is that it is rather small and doesn't cover much. Nice to see but not a real must see.
  • Great exhibitions, passionately curated. A lovely café with decent pricing. But the highlight is the movie theater downstairs. I go and visit it often once a week at least. They showcase film classics, rarities as well as new movies. Carefully selected, sometimes a lecture is included right before the movie. All movies are shown in their original language, no dubbing terror.
