“Interesting snapshot that falls short”

Film Museum (Museu del Cinema)
Ranked #8 of 92 things to do in Girona
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed February 7, 2013

We loved the early history of moving images, puppeteering and how these things captured the human imagination.

It was surprising however that the museum did not have any reference to latter day cimena..when so much has changed. There were some old videos of the first movies from the early 1900s..and then when you get to the Golden Years of hollywood, it was all stills....and then after that, there is nothing. This is disappointing given the advances in animation, 3D etc.

I don't think it is really about the Cinema - more about how we got to the moving picture.

Didn't expect much having lived in LA for several months, but it was a great museum. Really shows the history of movies from the beginning to present time really worth the effort to go.

this museum is in the "new" part of Girona so is easy to miss if you're spending all your time in historic section. But it is a very educational museum for the film/photography buff. Lots of old equipment on display. Basically the history of filmmaking from beginning to present. Plan at least one hour.

We wanted to visit this as the reviews were good but it was only okay. I think it would be boring for young children.
