I love the magic behind movies so this place was fun for me. I especially enjoyed the pieces that showed the evolution of visual illusions and film. The pieces are beautifully displayed and laid out to allow for a good flow.

This museum was well worth a visit. Lots of it is in English and there are lots of interactive exhibits to entertain. It's not expensive either.

Great place to visit - especially if you have children (or are still one yourself!) - very interactive where you are able to enter into sets and be 'filmed'; excellent artefacts from pre-filmaking era; details of film props; costumes; 4 levels of involvement - Great if you have the Museums Ufer ticket that gives free entry into 34 museums over...

Compact but informative journey through the history of German and international film. Great exhibition of photos of ruined N.American movie theaters. Recommended...

We spent 2 solid hours exploring this museum. We found the details of movie-making fascinating. We never realized we were interested in anything but watching the finished product! Had a great time poking around. This museum is very hands-on. Lots of fun!

Worth the visit just to see the medley film they have produced! It is simply amazing. Some parts inappropriate for small children

We actually only stopped by the museum because Germany was in the middle of a heat wave and we wanted reprieve from the heat. However, we were pleasantly surprised by how great this museum was. It has a TON of interactive exhibits that would be great for kids and adults alike. It wasn't too long so you knew you didn't... More
