  • Lovingly designed and presented super interesting exhibits. A must at the Frankfurt museum embankment in Sachsenhausen, height Swiss road. This includes the many interesting special exhibitions and events. I and my husband will be at the 26.02.2017 there, if long Oscar night will be broadcast live and with programme celebrates the Oscar ceremonies. Featured!

  • As a fan of films such as Wallace & Gromit and the sheep to Shaun, we had to look at the special exhibition of Aardman. For this exhibition the visit definitely worthwhile – up to the 29.1.2017, it is still to be seen. The permanent exhibition is nothing extraordinary but definitely worth seeing, but unfortunately. Those who are interested in cinema and film, however is at his own expense. In addition to original costumes there a real "Academy Award" and many pieces of filming, such as notebooks or individual pages from scripts, to see. For fans of technology worth a look in the history of cinema and movie playback from the permanent exhibition. For currently €10 entry (including special exhibition) fine.

  • 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.
