I saw many people recommend this museum and I found myself enjoyed staying here for 4hours!!!! Here you can see the film evolution and you can DIY( just like you're the director) to create your own film!! The latest digital revolution show is full of amazement!!!!! I will come again next time~
Probably my favourite place in Frankfurt. There is a fantastic 4 screen installation on the second floor a I believe where they display a beautiful movie clip collage of the key elements of film. I'm not entirely sure how long we were sat there but it was like we were sucked into this experience for surely over an hour, and I wasn't mad at it. Reminds me the triptych paintings in the Rothko chapel, except this is film art. On the same floor there is also an interactive section where you can experience how green screens work, and the power lighting has in story telling. Our admission was for the permanent exhibit and also Space Odessey exhibit they had the time, it was about 13€, definitely worth it, I think just the permanent exhibit was about 6€. It's a great museum. Would definitely come again if I am ever in Frankfurt.
