  • Nice interactive museum. It shows real items from famous films (oscar, wigs, suits etc.) but also has an interactive part where you can make your own pics in a green box. Price is ok.

  • We really enjoyed our visit here:) We didn't have a lot of time to walk around the exhibitions (we had an hour roughly) but we still covered both open exhibitions. There is one permanent exhibition and the other one - "Katastrophe" was the temporary exhibition that portrayed catastrophic events and disasters in movies. Both exhibitions were great but we liked the permanent one better, thought it was more interesting and appealing:) It is also more interactive and has many unique items on display. They have reduced-priced tickets for students. I would recommend checking out this museum if you're around!
  • A fascinating place with great exhibits. The examples of early film technology were interesting and the information that explains how modern films are made was fantastic. We spend a good 2 hours going around, taking in all the facts and watching the film snippets. Highly recommended if you're looking for something to do in Frankfurt and you love movies.
