- The Cinema Museum is a Private museum displaying Tomàs Mallol Collection of pre-cinema and cinema objects. - You can discover the predecessors and origins of film, as well as how it developed from its creation through to the arrival of television. Special mention should be made for the projector used by the Lumière brothers for their first public projection.... More

This is definitely worth visiting if you are a fan of cinema and photography. It is laid out in an interactive way and shows the progression from early photos to the current day. Excellent.

We spent 30-40 minutes touring this museum. We would have stayed a little longer but needed to catch a train. The museum focuses primarily on the history of film production, as opposed to the movies themselves. They have a huge inventory of devices from the 19th and early 20th century that were used to produce moving objects. The devices still... More

A very good visit to do in Girona when the weather is not good. In fact even if it's sunny ;) I learned several things on the cinema and visual entertainment in the past. I would recommend that for everyone. They have a section dedicated to childrens so going in family would be a good idea as well.

The tag line for the museum is "...what cinema was before cinema" which describes the place perfectly so I cannot believe that for almost the entire time I was in this museum, I was the only visitor. Unbelievable, as I consider this to be one of the finest cultural museums I have ever visited and it only cost me only... More

Really enjoyed this. You could spend hours in there if you listen to every part of the audio tour which can be downloaded for free. Only criticism it that they could have had more modern day exhibits and maybe some Spanish film history? Well worth €5 though 👍🏻

This unassuming museum is great for film buffs and has examples of cameras, stills, historical lantern slides and gives a comprehensive history of moving pictures through the past hundred years

Fantastic collection of artefacts, cameras, posters and memorabilia dating from the earliest days of the image and moving image. Lots of interactive exhibits for kids or big kids, even if you are not really interested in the media, i think you will have a smile on your face throughout. A wonderful and essential experience. Be sure to get a museum... More
