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

took us about an hour to go through all 3 floors of the museum which were quite interesting but there was no guide for our tour and we had to read the notes on the displays but not all displays were explained well

Only the photography part was open so can't give a proper review. However, even this seemed to consist only of a selection of film star-related photographs (unless I missed something).

I enjoyed this museum a lot. As other reviewers say, the majority of the museum is actually about moving image rather than cinema. In fact, you would wish the cinema section would be larger, as it was very interesting too. Through and through, the museum is executed with detail, care and taste in every aspect.

I thoroughly enjoyed whiling away a couple of hours here learning about the development of film - for this is really what this museum is all about. There are many items of memorabilia from the 19 and early 20 centuries which really add to the whole experience.

Although not part of "old Girona" dont miss this gem of a museum that shows the development of film technology.

The name Museu del Cinema can be a bit deceiving: visitors should have in mind that this is more of a museum of the moving image. It provides us with a great chronological profile of the human search for recording motion, from the ancient chinese shadow puppetry to the beginning (with emphasis on the word "beginning") of Cinema. Its collection... More

More of a History of moving images than a film museum, we found it to be fascinating. Progression from shadow puppets to the development of photography to moving pictures was very well done. Ended with an odd in memorium to silent movie stars. Larger than we expected too. Allow 2 hours.

While this museum is more about the technology leading up to films, and not about movie history, it does an excellent job at it. The layout of the museum is chronological, with enough text to help you understand what you see, while brief enough to avoid becoming a burden to read. This is usually a fine balance and they get...

As some other reviewers have said this is a strange location for this museum. But it was really worthwhile to see. Nice break from all of the heavy and religious stuff in girona. This museum is not so much about the history of film but about the history of the technology of film. It starts in ancient china / India... More
