Depending on what the exhibition is, this will be a great visit for film fans. Even despite an exhibition that appeals, the rest of the museum will appeal to movie buffs. Quite quiet in the week. An un-disturbed visit.

I highly recommend visiting the museum if you're interested in doing something fun and easy. I'm just a little disappointed there were no afternoon films to watch but the cameras on display, the photos and the gift shop were all great.

Two permanent galleries (on separate floors) tell, firstly, the story of the development of motion pictures from pre-cinema to the 1900s; and then, secondly, how films are made. A third floor features a temporary exhibition. Labels are in English and German. There plenty to interact...More
