  • It's a good museum with a two part main exhibit. The first part is about the story of the different technique that lead to movie and the second on the making of a film. There is a lot of interactive parts and the museum is quite fun.
  • Very detailed history of the cinema with an enormous collection of historical material. On the top floor, kids can make a flipbook and get funny pics of themselves being part of a blockbuster thanks to a green screen.
  • Wunderbar Platz. Lovely place, lot of information.
  • Well made Museum. Everything written in German and English. Nice staff. Not very crowded. Calm atmosphere. Very clean and modern. You may take pictures without flash. Thank you.
  • Fascinating musuem that looks at the history of film, and how the modern film is made. Also has cinemas for special film screenings. Don't expect mainstream films here though.

The old section of the Sachsenhausen area is also an epicenter of activity with a range of accommodations; it also offers a vibrant nightlife.
