Really interesting museum with loads of interactive activities. We managed to spend the best part of a rainy afternoon here. It traces the history of cinema up to around the 80s but the old style films and camera trickery was so good to see and understand from a behind the scenes point of view. We don't have children but it looked really engaging for kids too.
Cinema is stories told through light and shadow! The exhibition tells us about the technical development of the art of movies, but there's also a magic fascination all along. It's a very well thought-out museum, never boring. Plan for at least a 2 hour visit. The main focus is on the older history of photography and movies (pre-1900). You'll get to understand why human beings love movies -- our drive for visual imagination is strong.
Amazing place! As a film fanatic and an aspiring writer I enjoyed this museum enormously. And it was a great way to show my 5 y.o. son where the films and animation come from. You will find a lot of optical illusions here, as well as the old cameras of all kinds. Also all the information inside the museum is very educating and entertaining, even without an audioguide. But this is not a place for people, who don't like history or expect something about modern movies. This is a museum for true fans of the art of cinema. Fantastic experience!
Very interesting, loads...loads of exhibits and a good progressive narrative (in multiple languages including English) throughout. Oddly we were the only couple in there which was great for us!
Very entertaining museum. Definetly a must when you are in Girona.
