The miniature rooms are interesting, and extremely skilful, but they are modern, so I am not sure that calling it a museum is quite correct. Having said that, when I was there, everyone was enjoying their visit. I loved the 1970s hippy flat, with its Hendrix poster on the door, and also the models of an abandoned theatre.

The museum is set on 5 floors with the top floor having some fantastic miniatures. The level of detail is amazing. The area is a little cramped and it is hard to get a pram around. There are also interesting 18+ areas showing props from films like Aliens which was fantastic but not for kids. Overall, the museum is kid... More

This huge building is just inside the city. It is full of epic movies' and actors belongings. You can see Harry Potters wand and many goods of the Star Wars series. There is also a part of the museum where you can see miniatures. Just remember, even if you are a foreigner, there is a student discount in this museum... More

Memorabilia from films are very impressive for a European museum but the miniature collection is incredible. Clearly a must see.

The museum is fascinating. Its much bigger than you think. Some rooms are so much superior to others but its worth the price of entry

The explanations as well as the sheer quantity and quality of the pieces are simply astounding. We spent well over an hour in the museum and loved seeing real movie props as well as learning all about how special effects are made. Well worth the money!!

Completely new experience. 9€ adult ticket takes you to atleast an hour worth of stuff you've never seen before! They show you how movies are made and they have big menorbilia from Xmen costumes to even the dead rats from some smaller horror movies. They show the magic of CGI and green screen editing. Trully a mega party pooper when... More

By all means, schedule at least 2 hours, maybe 3, for a visit to this unique museum which features, as the title indicates, miniatures and cinematic paraphernalia. It is educational, informative, and downright fun. Highly recommended.
