Spent a good 2-3 hours at this great museum. Especially loved the interactivity and the brilliant montages of films covering aspects of sound, lighting and music etc. Would definitely recommend to any film buffs or fans of german/early cinema.

Small but packed with relevant information concerning film and media. A very good representation of projectors and early machines. Worth an hour of your time. It's located close to four or five other museums.
