I've been to a lot of museums related to film before, especially one of them being my favorite back home in NYC (Museum of Moving Image). This museum wasn't huge, but it was worth it. I loved how it went into detail about the history of film and in chronological order as you walked through. You can easily stay there... More

Girona isn't a big city, so I just came here to fill up my day... And it was cheap. But man, was I wrong. This museum is amazing. Starting with shadow play and the camera obscura, all the way to modern cinema and technology. This museum thaught about all the details, fun for young & old, a lot of things... More

The film museum is one of those place you wouldn't know is there, or what exactly is in there. Its a good couple of hours away from the heat and includes a number of floors of archive and modern footage of the film. This includes various genres, guaranteed to be of interest to a diversity of age groups. I'm really... More

A fantastic collection of filmmaking tools in a very well maintained facility offers a great experience for any lover of film. Me and my family spent about 3 hours exploring the collection and having a great time. It is very cheap to enter and would definitely recommend.

I'm a film buff and thought I was familiar with the early days of filmmaking, but this museum does a spectacular job of tracing the origins of modern film back to medieval shadow shows through Camera Obscura and Magic Lanterns, and gives you hundreds of beautifully preserved or re-created examples of the commercial and consumer "gadgets" of the times. I... More

We went while on holiday in Gerona, read about the museum on Tripadvisor. It was a really nice place, staff was very friendly and the museum was really cool! Was interesting to see the history of cinematic through time, well told, and also fun facts. We spent a few hours there on a rainy day, would definitely recommend the museum,... More

It was different to what I expected, less about cinema and more about the history of photography and the moving image. There were lots of hands on exhibits and it was very interesting to see the history and how it developed into the films we know and watch today.

It was not planned, but suddenly we stood in front of this modest building in a quiet neighbourhood and we decided to give it a go. The extensive collection of artefacts from the very beginning of photography till the motion picture of the sixties was very interesting and brought a smile on our faces. Perhaps the collection could be more... More

As a film journalist this place was top of my list of things to do in Girona, and it definitely didn't disappoint. If you love cinema and films, this is the place to learn about how it all began, offering a comprehensive history of motion pictures from shadow theatre in Asia to the modern film industry, with information in English,...
