  • After having read more reviews about this museum I had expected a much smaller museum than what we got to see. A warning: If you are interested in is this museum film nothing for you. What you get is the story of Karel Zeman, a renowned film director who is known for his animated films. The museum brings you through the various films that have put his name on the map and does so through texts, quotaties, movies in which actors/colleagues/friends/family of the man explain about some aspect of his life, different costumes and small interactive installations. In other words no old-fashioned museum with some placards and lapping text but a fun, modern museum in which you aware about the Czech film in different ways. For people who can't make the making-of extras on to view their DVDs/blu-rays this museum is definitely recommended!

  • An amazing museum dedicated to the genius of Karel Zeman, a true pioneer of cinema and special effects. The museum uses movies, props and visual settings to communicate the great achievements of his creations. The interactive parts of the museum make this a great experience for both children and children in heart, with a lot of fun buttons to push and photo opportunities. As Terry Gillian says in the closing movie, more people should know about Zeman, so they can see how much he affected modern cinema. I would recommend this museum to everyone who loves movies!
  • Beautiful little museum/exposition about an icon in czech animation and cinema. We spent a very long time there looking at the examples, it was intriguing. Respect to the makers of this. The soundtrack of the group "clarinet factory" added well to the atmosphere. If you are interested in czech stop-motion animation and matte effects in film, then go there!
  • Amazing museum for who loves movies and wants to know more about effects in the past.
  • This is unique place showing the roots of special film effects. Karel Zeman has set the foundations of movie making. His work has inspired film giants such as Tim Burton, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. The famous movies by Zeman are just digitally renewed and reconstructed. 2015 was released "Invention For Destruction" (Vynález zkázy, orig. 1958), just recently at May 2016 was released "Baron Munchausen" (Baron Prášil, orig. 1961), and at 2017 release of "The Journey To Beginning Of Time" (Cesta do pravěku, orig. 1955).
  • Lovely museum with famous Karel Zeman films! Bit short but won't be disappointed.
