We went to the Film Museum to escape the rain and were more than pleasantly surprised, spending over two hours checking out all of the exhibits. Rather than being a museum of German Film history, which was what I was expecting, it is a museum of World Film history. On the first floor there is a room full of pre- and early cinematic equipment, some of which are interactive, so you get a chance to play and marvel at the history of moving images from the end of the nineteenth century. And there is a lovely screening of numerous early films from Germany, France and Britain that have been digitally restored for the museum, some memorable ones from Lumiere and Melies. On the second floor there are more modern cinematic references, with the several stops where you can have a go at editing and scoring a film, see different lighting effects, play with some green screen CGI. And watch a montage of clips from a host of well known films.
The third and fourth floors of the museum are currently closed, but we had spent long enough in the museum at this point already, greta value for the EUR5.00 entrance fee.
Good to note that there is a locker facitily downstairs in the museum - you need a one or two euro coin to be able to lock the door, but you get this back when you collect your belongings.
