Friendly staff and a warm welcome. Some insights into Italian cinema but mainly an international approach. Translations are not good at all If you are going to do them get a native speaker to check them over. They were TERRIBLE. Visitors were given a few sheets of A4 to read out room by room which helped a bit but not... More

A bit out of the way really but near the station ( which is out of the way). Quite interesting but doesn't take too long to see unless you are a film nerd.

A small but entertaining museum, film lovers will appreciate it. Wish things were written in English but being in a non English speaking country, wasn't expecting it. Next to the WWII museum, so may as well hit this as well. Kitschy and fun.

This museum comes across as if put together by someone who knows very little about cinema. I was hoping to find out more about Sicilian and Italian cinema - sadly this was only in Italian and very sketchy. The film sets are kitsch fun but not informative

We had a couple of hours to kill in Catania so decided to visit the museum of cinema in the city's museum complex just a few meters from the railway station. Really glad we visited it.

The museum was interesting enough, it presents the beginning of the cinema, up to the present. Also features a small cinema where people watch an actor talking about cinema. I would recomend this museum simply because it is near the "Museo dello Sbarco in Sicilia" and if you go there, you should definatley check out this museum too!
