It will be interesting to those who likes the history of cinema. Not the most interesting Museum, but many people like it. At the Museum, on the corner across the street, there is a cheap pizzeria, you can have a bite if you like pizza.

Great information about the history of film up to the modern day. The temporary exhibition about film and games was good too!

When you enter this museum for the first time, the lobby is already very welcoming. There is a cafe that looks really nice. There are seats also for people who just want to enjoy big screen in the middle of the hall. They also have an open bookstore which I think will become the model store of the future But... More

This museum has a well earned reputation as one of the foremost film museums in Europe. It has toured, worldwide, with exhibitions of Kubrick and others. Modern, well designed with several cinemas inside showing classics, this place is an enthusiast's dream. Nice food area and bar too. Well worth a visit.

You wouldn't guess by the name, but this is absolutely the hit for kids from 3-40. The lower flow has lots of interactive antique animation devices and the higher floors have interactive video installations. The top floor has a workshop where you can design flipbooks, get them printed, and cut them out, and a blue screen where you can dress... More

Being from America it was interesting that the majority of the museum had to do with USA film and games. The grandkids 12 and 9 loved it we were in here for 2 hours. They played the games on the top floor and the bottom floor was interactive which we all really enjoyed showing how film making was developed and... More

I visited only Film And Games and I was dissapointed. For 6e how much students ticket costs you can see some old video games and movies, and maybe play a little some old one ones, like street fighter 2, star wars lego, and thats all. This is a very small exhibition.

Located on the main street of Frankfurt and on the side of the river makes this place is a must visit for film lovers. Here we can learn the German history of Cinema. The cafe is nice on the corner with some salads and cold/hot drink from cola to coffees. One thing we should not forget also is the museum... More

An interesting museum with a fair amount of interactive activities but not a lot in English. As someone who speaks very little German I felt that I missed out on a lot.
