If you are interested to know how the movies were made, definitely the place to see. Very, vey old nice rooms, remaining from the old palace which was here. I definitely miss more descriptions, better expositions.

Having lived in Lodz for many years but never having visited it before, when my parents came I thought it would be a great place to show them. After all, Lodz is the home of cinema in Poland. When we went in, I asked if there was any information in English - even just a leaflet would have been nice.... More

If you are interested in cinema history and willing to make your ways to the outskirts of Lodz this will not disappoint. The museum is built into an old palace and many of the rooms remain as they were. The cinema rooms are scattered around the place with puppets and animation in the attic, film editing in the basement and... More

3 museums in 1 - confusing, dusty, not worth visiting... The only interesting part was architecture of an old adjusting villa.

If you are interested, or even remotely interested, in cinematography, then this is the museum for you. Lodz has been the centre of Polish film making and animation and entrance to see this splendid collection of film equipment, props, stage sets, etc is for nothing (well, 10 zloty actually, but well worth it). The exhibits include one of the five... More

Even if you're not a big fan of cinema history, I believe it's worth visiting and learning more about animation, movies and equipment used to make movies in the past. Don't forget to try delicious coffee there!

Overview of cinematography in general is very good, especially the technical side is very well represented. Posters of old film with an international flavour. I was slightly disappointed about the connection with Lodz Film school, famous pupils and teachers were difficult (or not) to find
