  • Wonderful exhibition! Begins with shadow theatre and magic lanterns, ends with latest blockbusters and cinematic techniques - interesting for kids of any age. Fun, interactive games on the last floor (temporary exhibition about expressing emotions). Museum shop has good quality toys that go well with the theme. View from the tower is breathtaking.
  • Exceptional and very interesting museum. We loved lying in the chairs looking at the big screen! We discover scenery, an exhibition on pre-cinema. We enjoyed walking around the dome while climbing up and seeing lots of film clips. Don't miss it and take the time to stroll for at least 2 hours. Enjoy your visit
