  • The most interesting Museum! Recommend. Held it for about an hour and a half. The exposition starts with watching a movie on the history of cinema in English, then an independent examination of the 4 floors. Very entertaining! It's really worth to see!

  • We entered by chance, as did time until it came time to make a guided tour of the city of Girona, and we liked it so much that when it came time to go, they still remained us things to see in the Museum and guided tour we left for another time. It is a journey through the history of the cinema, from the point of view of the technical tools and machinery used to make film, is not the history of movies, not actors seen cinema. Three floors of the Museum with a purpose very didactic and interactive, since sometimes you can touch and see how is the performance of some of the machines used. There are only two museums of its kind in Europe (the other is in Italy), and we have very close, so we can not missed us! At all times, there are explanatory panels to better understand what we are seeing, but it also has QR codes that puedees read with the application of Girona museums (OK for this Museum and other city), and your own mobile makes audio-guide. Recommended for the whole family.

  • Brilliant experience. We went early on a weekday and there seemed to be only one other person in the whole place. Apparently the museum has won awards, which isn't surprising! You really get to experience the evolution of cinema, which makes it great for kids. It seems to stop abruptly around the 1950's however and we felt there was a lot to be said after that too, however that is pretty much my only criticism. Throughly recommended, one of the best things to do in Girona.
  • Beautiful museum! Particularly if you love the cinema, in there you can understand his history and understand how it is birth. Overall there are interesting activities and Small machines which you can see the light, colors, the movement... Really beautiful, for children too!!
  • Incredibly interactive with a unique and and fascinating narrative of the history of cinema. This museum was the highlight of my trip to Girona and amongst the best museums I've ever visited. Highly recommended!!
  • I really liked that. They have a really good exhibition about cinema history. You should download the audio guide app from their free wifi, because it can be really helpful to get more information.
  • Surprisingly awesome museum, really big, interesting, for young and old. I've spend more then two hours here. Not expensive at all
