  • Cute Museum in private hands, which is made with lots of love. We arrived at 10: 00 a.m. and got a private introduction in the audio guide (English and Spanish) and the Museum (spanglisch). Then there's a screening of short films from different projectors. All in all worth watching, especially for film buffs.

  • A wonderful little museum,definitely worth a visit when in Cali.We were lucky to get a personal tour by very enthusiastic Santiago who really took us back in time showing us films,cameras and other th...  more »
  • Never in my life seen a film projector and much less a true wooden box camera. They have a large collection of photos, video cameras, projectors and others that are worth knowing. I arrived with 40 minutes to close and could not have a guided visit. So 1. It's best to arrive with time and 2. Take advantage of the guided tour, see film and learn about techniques of cinema. Did not know a Museum of this style, so they go and use it much.

  • This museum is the the best. The owner has amassed the greatest collection of everything related to the film business. He gave us a personal tour...And explained every piece of equipment. Also told us stories about many famous people connected with the film industry throughout the years. He has wonderful posters from years gone by. And constantly adding to the collection. Don't miss this place. Loved it.
  • I loved this place. It is so amazing, you can see a lot of things in there related with the cinematic art form; old classics and contemporary classics. You will feel surrounded by art. Besides, they have a lot of cameras from the late 19 and the 20th century.
  • This is a must if you like film history or even films at all. The museoum will show how the magic hapens when you go to a film, how it started and what are some of the international tales surrounding this marvelous world. Art, music and films all together in the history of how our humanity is portraied in our movies. Great place to visit in Cali.
  • If you like to know about Cali and Movies this is the place to go! Friendly staff ! And really old cameras to be amazed !
  • Small but very interesting. Visit with audio guide then human guide, ending with watching old movies from one of the first cinema machine . Hundred of mustwatch film ideas. Biggest camera collection in latinamerica. Staff is really cool too ! I highly recommend!
