They have many interesting items and props from all sorts of movies, they have alot of interesting information about movie making and behind the scenes information. The muesum was fun to visit and we took our time to read and learn on how movies are made.

The museum is set in a beautiful build in the heart of the old town. Didn't really know what to expect when we walked in. The film memorabilia was brilliant and very informative. Well worth a visit.

A museum of miniature room sets isn't something I'd normally be interested in, but having been dragged along I'm really glad I went. Yes it has the usual "doll's house" type interiors, but there are also really odd displays like "the attic in an opera house" and even "inside a swimming pool" all beautifully built and with astonishing detail. You... More

A wonderfully different place to visit. The passion for miniatures and cinema props is evident throughout. Cost us €9 each. Very worthwhile. Great displays.

This place blew my mind! I'm a film buff, and have been to many Hollywood museums that show off costumes, sets, and so on. I always enjoy getting lost in the atmosphere and creations of movies, but this place totally blew my mind. Turns out, special effects for movies come in all shapes and sizes. This museum shows off the... More

There is a downstairs room with free entry that gives you an insight into what expect in the museum. The actual museum is very large and spread over several floors .Well worth the 8 euros we paid. There are lots of props and costumes from all types of films which are well documented in English. The miniature sets were very... More

We came across this attraction totally by chance as the entrance was fairly small. Inside we found 5 floors of special cinema effects used in very well known films.Lots of them all with good information. Fascinating! The top 2 floors were full of miniature scenes which were absolutely wonderful in their detail and imagination. An added bonus was moving from... More
