Museum of the Moving Image advances the understanding, enjoyment, and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and technology of film, television, and digital media. Accessible, innovative, and forward-looking, the Museum presents exhibitions, education programs, significant moving-image works, and interpretive programs, and maintains a collection of moving-image related artifacts. In doing so, the Museum serves a diverse public at its New York City home and online, and provides leadership in its field. Attendance numbers more than 200,000 visitors each year, including 50,000 school children. In January 2011, the Museum reopened after a major expansion and renovation that nearly doubled its size.Plan to visit Museum of the Moving Image during your Astoria vacation using our convenient Astoria itinerary planner.

A few small masks, make-up and special effects that recall d childhood memories (or not!) The rest of the tour is more fun, with experiments, including dubbing voice and sound. It is funny and it delighted the visit. Nice in the end!View original
A wonderful place for movie aficionados or just the curious. Delightful and unexpectedly modern space housing an in-depth look at the history of movie making interweaving technology and art. The Scors... more »
This is an incredible museum. There is such a wealth of history and information here it's hard to even take it all in in one trip; I ended up going through costumes and makeup a little faster than I'd... more »
This is a great museum for both adults and kids to learn about film and television. You can see costumes, make your own animation and put your own voice over classic films. Taking in all aspects of the moving image, they also have a fantastic (and fun!) selection of functioning video games. Don't miss the Jim Henson exhibits either!
This place is awesome. My boyfriend and I love movies and TV shows. So it was awesome seeing the props and other background info for some of the best films. They also have a very cool arcade with old games, so fun! We went on a Friday night and they happened to have a special where it's free to get in after 4:00 pm. There was more than enough time to walk through everything. We want to go back for a movie screening!
Cool place.. video game exhibit brought back lots of memories and my kids loved them too
This is a wonderful museum. Arcade exhibition was amazing. You will want to come back here. Great interior design and displays.
I can't say enough about how cool this museum is. They have items from all throughout TV and movie history: costumes, cameras, lighting equipment, and right now there's an amazing arcade exhibit with everything you could ever want to play (space invaders, double dragon, TMNT, just to name a few)
