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

The Deutsches Filmmuseum successfully manages to consistently offer an interesting program of old films. It contributes significantly to enhancing Frankfurt's cultural scene.

This little gem of a museum is on the Museum Strip that runs along the river in Frankfurt. We went there mainly because my 10-year old is into movies. It's a must-see if you are interested in moving images. I especially liked the concept behind the organization of the permanent exhibits over two floors. The first floor is devoted to... More

As soon as we knew it was a film museum in the city, we decided to go as we love cinema. The museum is very well organized, with 2 floors with different themes. The first floor is all about the invention of cinema form the 18th century onwards, with explanations, original objects and reproductions you can touch and use. There... More

The museum delves into the development of the film process. Examples of film making in earlier times was quite interesting. Photographs and signatures of many actors of years gone by are on display. A number of story boards provide an insight to the film world. Worth a visit as you move down the "Museum Street".

This museum is a must for film lovers. It takes a look at the history of film as well as behind the scenes to show how filming is done. There are a number of hands-on exhibits that demonstrate the processes film makers have utilized over the course of moving picture evolution. Among these are many clips of movies that you... More

I loved this museum! Their permanent exhibition was just fantastic (all in English as well as German), and it was fascinating to learn the beginnings and then techniques of the modern movies we are so familiar with but you realise there's so much you don't think about when you watch them. The temporary exhibition about old theatres was also incredible,... More

My husband and I purchased full tickets to this museum, including the temporary exhibition. It was a very interesting experience but for the size of the museum and the fact that we weren't allowed to take pictures in the temp. exhibition room (which apparently is what you pay most of your ticket for), I think 10 euro per person is...

Very interesting museum where You can, not only watch and read about films but also learn new things in interactive way. Starting from the history about pictures until the acting and sound in the movies.
