“really interested museum if you like films or photography”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Lots of history about the development of cinema as an art form, all in four languages so don't worry if you don't speak Catalan!

“great museum”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

A great museum for cinema lovers. It's not really a "cinema" museum but a pre-museum, I mean, it's mostly based on the inventions that finaly created cinema as we know it now. Magic lanterns and such. It also has a wonderful shop where you can find lot's of books and items, and a great selection of movie posters.

“Surprisingly interesting”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

We got in for free (possibly because it was Sunday). The permanent exhibitions were really interesting with lots of interactive exhibits.

A truly fascinating walk through the history of cinema, from the earliest camera obscura, through magic lanterns to the present day.

“Interactive, manageable museum”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

This museum is in the new area of town, so not in as lovely a location, but still worth a visit. The visit starts with a short film (of course) that gives a brief history of motion pictures. From there you go to the third floor and work your way back down through the different exhibits. The museum is very interactive and has information in several different languages. We spent an enjoyable hour there. Kid friendly.
