  • Not your typical museum. Many interesting exhibits revolving around movies. Can watch old movies of many types. Very modern in style. Will appeal to all ages.  more »

  • It's an amazing place. A lot of historic "souvenirs" are here from pages of original screenplays to the original clothes worn in different movies, from posters to little stages and so so so much more. It is one of my favourite museums I've ever visited in the whole world. P.A. Staff are really kind and toilets are spotless.
  • It is a very nice place. The Jim Henson exhibit is amazing and brings me back to my childhood. The games and the cameras also show you how much as a society we have evolved and how I can do all of that and more with a little piece of metal in my pocket. A very good museum to visit. Good for kids because there are a lot of games on the 3rd floor.
