  • Great interactive displays (shadow puppets, zoetropes, optic demos). So much creativity on display here. Anyone with an interest in art or science should check it out. Our 5-year-old also loved it and asked to go back the very next day. There were English descriptions on just about everything.
  • Personally considered the best attraction in Girona. The entrance is cheap, and it tells the history of cinema in detail with a lot of interaction tools. It makes you remember the history while having fun!
