  • Great way to learn about film/media history and industry in an hour or so. There are interactive sections for understanding film production. Lots of mainstream Hollywood examples, hope to see more German and continental showcases.
  • Wow, this film museum exhibits tons of interesting information. One floor focuses on the history of film, and we can interact with very old objects that led to what film is today. Another floor divides film making into sound, image, and effects - very entertaining.
  • Nice but small museum dedicated to film. The entrance offers a shop with books and media in German, and the wall of actors. The upper floor is dedicated to several movies (surprisingly even to Star Wars) and different production departments. Live green screen is here too. All descriptions are in German only. The museum is not so worth 6 Euro fee. It's like 15min museum.
  • Small but interesting museum of films. Short history of photograph and moving pictures and some documents, assets of recent films. Some of them are interactive and instructive so I think this is also good place for children. Two floors permanent exhibition will spend 30-60min
  • such an interesting and fun experience in this museum, very interactive. A must visit location for the creative mind.
