We jumped in with scepticism but left the museum with great enthusiasm. A real must visit, certainly if you have the city card. Not only you visit the rich museum but in the same time a rich traboule. Real value for money!

SciFi and horror movie buffs will enjoy the movie-related material very much. Actual props, makeup, visual effects from films most have seen or are aware of. The miniatures came late in the process ( you have to climb ancient stairs to see everything, which is displayed in about 14 rooms. The miniatures were amazing recreations of French scenes and life.... More

It is a different, quite unique museum to visit! There are a lot of curiosities and different things to see (compared to what we are use to see in European museums) . However, the house it is built at, has a lot of stair and rooms.

This museum is great with teenagers. The scary parts might be scary for little kids but definitely 10 and over will have no issues. Mama alien is awesome. The miniatures will also enthrall you. Can't recommend this enough.

I really enjoyed this museum, there are lots of little props and oddities to look at and even though I don't watch many movies, this was really interesting. The miniatures especially were brilliant and the Alien queen was just a little scary. A bit pricy at €9, but mostly worth it.

Anybody who is interested in cinema and watched a few films could find interest in this small museum in the old city. I assume children will especially enjoy it but, again, everybody could find known scenes from several films that he surely saw before.

Although I am not a particular movie buff, this place was fantastic. You start out in the gift shop with some miniature scenes and a beat up C3PO displayed before you need to buy a ticket and carry on. I wasn't sure what to expect after that, but we had the museum pass and my husband wanted to see it.... More

This is a great museum for teenagers. I just spent two hours looking at movie props from well known movies. The teenagers I brought along where thrilled to see the real stuff. The miniatures are a work of art and were also very appreciated. Worth a visit definitely.

8 floors of displays, many were the miniature of the cinema sets. There were a couple of very interesting videos to explain how these sets were used in movies.
