  • 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.

  • It's quite interesting place. The exhibition on the first floor is about the history of cameras, how it was developed, how people tried to transfer the reality by means of photoes. On the second floor it's presented the contemporary films art, costumes, makeup, special effects. You can even try to do your own sounds effects to different popular films.
  • I didn't go to the film museum but there was a very good market along the river outside the museum. It was a Saturday so I presume there's one every week. Busy and interesting. Would recommend.
