    The Museum has two well defined zones. A where he tells the story of the film and a second where you can interact with several equipments connected to filmmaking. The exemplary Museum because it is very effective, that is, has the ideal size and excellent coffee.

    On the last day of the special exhibition "Red in the film" we did then finally but into it - and we were very positively surprised. There was to discover a lot in the film clips that were very well chosen. Some texts have explained even everything beautiful. I've often seen the permanent exhibition - this time we took however more time for the film clips that were selected on specific topics (music, colour, sound,...) to see - and it was very worth. The remainder of the exhibition I like very much, because many technical aspects are well explained work such as a projector.

    It is a Museum of rare have not seen too much feeling. You can see articles about movies, pictures and images related to. Enter the museums located in Frankfurt for two days to get a little lost 35 of unlimited ticket (€18) I bought, they better go into the. Out if you don't fit their interests, then go away. What you think what is in their interests to meet in museums, Museum of fine arts.

  • 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.
