Cinema Museum, Girona Reviews
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!
Museum of the picture's 400 years including the begining of the phtography and finally cinematography. Containing a lot of materials and good demonstrations of camera obscura.
Excellent, informative with lots of interactive hands on exhibits. Definitely worth a visit.
interesting place well put together. kits enjoyed it
