  • 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.

  • Great way to learn about film/media history and industry in an hour or so. There are interactive sections for understanding film production. Lots of mainstream Hollywood examples, hope to see more German and continental showcases.
  • Wow, this film museum exhibits tons of interesting information. One floor focuses on the history of film, and we can interact with very old objects that led to what film is today. Another floor divides film making into sound, image, and effects - very entertaining.
  • Nice but small museum dedicated to film. The entrance offers a shop with books and media in German, and the wall of actors. The upper floor is dedicated to several movies (surprisingly even to Star Wars) and different production departments. Live green screen is here too. All descriptions are in German only. The museum is not so worth 6 Euro fee. It's like 15min museum.
  • Small but interesting museum of films. Short history of photograph and moving pictures and some documents, assets of recent films. Some of them are interactive and instructive so I think this is also good place for children. Two floors permanent exhibition will spend 30-60min
  • such an interesting and fun experience in this museum, very interactive. A must visit location for the creative mind.
