Firstly, this is a stunningly laid out museum. They really have used the space well and the exhibits are fantastic. I'm a big film fan so I thoroughly enjoyed reading the information cards and seeing the various pieces. If you're not a film fan then you won't find so much here for you but it's still a lovely museum nonetheless.... More

Located at the Sony center. This is a MUST for any Cinema lover!!! The exhibition is very uniquely designed, very innovative and interactive, filled with interesting facts, personal items, clips and stories behind the scenes. There are no audio guides but most of the exhibition was available with English descriptions and subtitles. The Marlene Dietrich exhibition was fantastic. Definitely worth... More

This museum is very interesting and was a great way to spend a rainy morning. The exhibitions are set out in a very accessible way with good use of mirrors a good mix of text, videos and props. Well worth a visit.

For those who love german films it is worthwhile and recommended. Location is the best, at the Sony Center, and the place was very well structured as a film Museum. It is mainly dedicated to Marlene Dietrich, but the section on Fritz Lang films was very interesting.

I am a big fan of German film. The exhibits were very creative with lots of interactive displays. I enjoyed the use of multiple screens and mirrors. Great section devoted to Marlene Dietrich that included several costumes. I would have liked a bit more on Louise Brooks but the great directors: Pabst, Murnau, Lubitsch, Lang, Herzog, Wenders were all well... More

I am not the biggest film fan, but the exhibits displayed here were very interesting. In particular the Metropolis and Caligari exhibits interested me. There are interactive touch screens throughout where you can take part in activities related to the films and there are plenty of screens around the museum playing various film clips. Well worth a visit to explore... More

Without really knowing what it was about, armed with an audio guide, I learnt a good deal about the origins of German film. Very entertaining method of imparting the story and cool displays. Can watch whole films if inclined

I enjoyed this museum thoroughly. As a fan of 1920s and 30s German movies, I was completely captivated by the contents and presentation of the era. The museum's entry hall is a visual stunner. Using mirrors and screens, the room appears to be a pathway through infinite space populated by clips from classic films...could easily have spent an hour in... More

This is a fascinating walk through the German film and television history. As I was viewing the very early short clips I got to think of Marhall McLuhans statement "The media is the message". Has technical evolution driven the storytelling or is what really intrigues people more of a spiritual element? Interesting also to see other elements like the diva´s,... More

This is a really interesting little museum and appears to be sadly not much visited , judging by the number of visitors when we were there. Firstly it's in the Bladerunner-esque Potsdamer Platz Sony Centre which is an amazing building. The museum is building is stunning, all glass, mirrors and film screens.It's really very well done and faintly disorientating, which... More
