  • 本身自己是电影爱好者。买的是通票10€,三楼是光影特别展,讲述了“红色”在电影中的应用,布局很有想法。这样一来,3.5个小时的时间只看了一半,完全看完应该需要一整天,不过博物馆大厅有小卖部的,不用担心。还有免费的WiFi蹭。里面没有语音导播,但是有德英双语的文字说明,对于不会德语的朋友是救星,是目前看过最值得一看性价比最高的一个博物馆。下次有机会再来看。  more »
  • On a rainy afternoon we called into this museum and spent about 2 hours looking around. It was very interesting especially if you like Marlena Dietrich  more »

  • The second film museum I've been in Europe and was very impressed with the simplicity in presentation. Don't expect to be overwhelmed with artifacts but expect to be educated and entertained. Permanent exhibitions are on level 1 and 2 Level 1 - Filmic Vision - Early apparatus, projection, movement, moving picture, exposure, cinema, photography. Basic film history. Try out some of the demo apparatus. Level 2 - Film Narrative - Sound. Editing. Acting. Costumes and makeup. Image. Be sure to try out the games for sounds and editing. There are four screens in the center of the room to project montages. Sit there and enjoy the great montage. Although be expected to do a lot of head turning. Enjoyed myself there. Spent nearly 2 hrs.
  • The German film museum has a large permanent exhibition full of interesting artefacts and some really fun interactive installations. When I visited they also had a visiting exhibition showcasing work by Aardman (think Wallace and Gromit), which was also heaps of fun.
  • Loved it. Recommend 100% to go. It's very interactive so will be fun for adult and kids. You get to see how filming techniques have changed over the years but also try them.
  • Very interactive and interesting museum, we had so much fun and learned many things!
  • Thre last floor is the most amazing. Go there to check out the animation exhibits.
