  • I loved this super Museum. Cinema lovers will find here at home: from a library where to watch old movies through books and monographs that only here you can find here. It has a temporary free exhibitions and spectacular fixed rooms which you can visit at a minimum price. In addition the exhibitions organized by used much material interactive, great if you're with children since the visit can be extended easily an hour. It's really a great Museum that I recommend to visit, you will learn many things from the world of the celluloid!

  • 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...
  • Surprisingly awesome museum, really big, interesting, for young and old. I've spend more then two hours here. Not expensive at all
  • The creator of this museum has a deep love and passion for film history. This shows through the exhibit, which is packed full of things to see and watch, walking you through how film started. Worth a visit for anyone into film. Plus free WiFi!
  • Easily one of the best places to visit if you are in Girona. Informative and entertaining.
  • We had the place to ourselves when we visited, it was informative and entertaining for the adults and the 10 year old in our family. Reasonable entrance fee and half price for any further Girona museums we visit now.
