Great for early expressionism, not so good for new german cinema

The collection and presentation was great at the start of the exhibition, but the later parts of the exhibition (later cinema) was a bit lacking in comparison.

I love cinema and this museum contains really great pieces of the German and the worlds filmic history. I was lucky to get there at a Thursday, because I found out that it's free entrance from 4 to 8pm. If you love cinema check it out, if not you might love after visiting this museum.

Enjoyed a good few hours here and thoroughly enjoyed wandering through this wonderful fascinating display. All information is dual German and English. Lovely tributes to Marlene Dietrich and Metropolis. Interesting Nazi propaganda section. Worth 7 euros for two long floors. Like the mirror section as I could see the top of my bald head for the first time.

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

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
