    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.

  • Surprisingly awesome museum, really big, interesting, for young and old. I've spend more then two hours here. Not expensive at all
  • A huge museum with a thorough description of the history of art and cinema. The least two hours visit.
  • Best collection of pre cinema objects
  • An impressive personal collection of movie-related artifacts made available to the public. You have seen these things in books but you can almost touch them here...
  • Nice museu about the history of the cinema
