  • This small museum, located on the top floor of the palazzo Angeli in Prato della Valle is a huge treat that embodies a magnificent private collection of precinema-era tools. Thanks to the great passion of the owner who has racked up more than 10,000 original pieces, you get a chance to see a past made of: glass projection, the new world with its optical views, a collection of optical toys, magic lanterns, caledidoscopi, thaumatropes, anamorphosis, toy lanterns and musical instruments. You are greeted by friendly staff and prepared, which very simply explain the different uses of these wonderful old units to charm people with movements and three-dimensional pictures of faraway places not known yet at all. We continue with a tube and then open partial collection, and can also interact with some pieces.

  • I stumbled across this museum with a bit of skepticism. At the entrance we were greeted with kindness. After a short introductory video there are rooms which houses of magic lanterns of different kinds, vintage cameras and other interesting exhibits. Would recommend a visit to this museum little noticed.

  • Little gem, maybe too small for a subject as vast and its history! Done guided tour accompanied by my daughter. Great Museum. Guides prepared and engaging! Tools and unique exhibits and interesting!
