“Hidden Treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This museum is not overally advertised but definitely worth spending the time to visit especially if you have an interest in film. You could easily spend a number of hours venturing through the rooms and to see the miniatures being made live in the workshop was a remarkable finale.

“Surprisingly interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

A surprisingly impressive collection of cinema-related stuff falling into several categories:
a) Room sets from the film Parfum
b) Costumes
c) Miniature sets such as those used for tank filming
d) Animatronics including some grisly body parts (in a separate room with a warning if you don't want to scare the kids)
e) Dolls house furniture of exceptional quality together with some extraordinarily detailed recreations of rooms from various periods.

I've never come across anything else quite like it. While the Planet of the Apes stuff did not appeal to me the animatronics were still fascinating (note they don't actually operate) and it gives one a great appreciation of the craft that goes into these productions.

You can take photos - quite tricky because of the low light and glass in front of most of the exhbits.

“Small things”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Miniatures and original props from movies in the free bit at the start. The rest of the thing wasn't free so not many people bought tickets. Still pretty good though.

“Exquisite little worlds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I enjoyed the miniature scenes, although I had to jostle a bit with other visitors on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Cinema scenes perhaps more interesting for those who have special interest. Narrow stairwells for going between the areas.

“Jaw Dropping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I couldn't believe all of the miniature props they had from first run and recent movies. There was a dress worn in the film "Lincoln". The path that you followed from floor to floor to view the various props was fascinating. The miniatures were truly works of art. I can't imagine the patience it took to create such minute details!
