  • That building is truly iconic and has a story which is quite incredible. Was supposed to by a synagogue and then they ran out of money. Most of it is empty, and was taken by the cinema museum. The...  more »

  • Wonderful exhibition! Begins with shadow theatre and magic lanterns, ends with latest blockbusters and cinematic techniques - interesting for kids of any age. Fun, interactive games on the last floor (temporary exhibition about expressing emotions). Museum shop has good quality toys that go well with the theme. View from the tower is breathtaking.
  • Exceptional and very interesting museum. We loved lying in the chairs looking at the big screen! We discover scenery, an exhibition on pre-cinema. We enjoyed walking around the dome while climbing up and seeing lots of film clips. Don't miss it and take the time to stroll for at least 2 hours. Enjoy your visit
  • Fantastic and fun place. Be ready to spend several hours there. A bit scary to take the elevator but nice view upstairs. The museum had a lot of interesting and interactive objects. A must do for movie nerds! We had trouble finding a nice place to eat in the neighborhood, because most of them were closed for the afternoon.
  • We spent a good hour in line to take the panorama lift up on a Friday evening because we didn’t think we’d want to visit the museum. But the lift goes through the museum so we got a chance to see what it’s like and decided to go the following day. There were a lot of people in the first part of the museum but then it spaces out. There’s lots of history to discover, many interactive things good for adults as well as kids, and a lot of fun things to see. Can definitely recommend it!
  • Extremely interesting it was to visit this museum. Analog 3D photos were amazing, also the very first drafts of analog animation. The history of cinema and its roots and origins in different parts of the world and in ancient civilizations were cleverly exhibited. All in all it was a very pleasant experience.
