Very cozy and educational place. Been there for more than an hour, and could spend even more. Most exciting pieces of photo and cinema equipment. Some interactive features. Very detailed explanation, and terrific idea with audio guide on your own smartphone. Enjoyed every part of the main exhibit and clearly will try to bring my kids here.

Just before leaving Girona after our overnight stay we thought of visiting the museum having seen it mentioned and signposted . Four floors of artefacts and the pioneers from the first of moving animation then beginning of motion picture to the movies as we now know it. Spent an hour anyway but could easily have spent a lot longer as found it really interesting especially with all the articles , pieces and equipment on display plus the informative video clips. Really worth a visit.
Mobility issues should be no problem as lifts available to all levels. Introduction video is on first level then lift takes you to 4th then descend each floor of the museum through the years of cinematography.

For over a century they have captured the imagination and entertained people everywhere.

Multitudes of great artefacts in this superlative museum give an absorbing history of the evolution of the moving, and before that the still, image.

Full credit to Tomàs Mallol, a filmmaker and artist, who dedicated a lifetime to his passion for cinema and moving images and assembled thousands of key items in their marvellous history.

From the early days of the 1800s onwards Camera Obscura and analogous image makers intrigued those of the public who were fortunate to come across them. An Edison Phonograph with its megaphone and wax disc illustrates developments in capturing and replaying sounds including the human voice.

A further seminal event was in 1878 when the photographer Eadweard Muybridge produced the first series of an animal in motion, utilising 12 adjacent cameras.

A plethora of projectors are displayed covering many decades and all documenting progress in the quest for flawless cinemas.

In the foyer is a large great sculpture of a mounted array of silver cylindrical boxes traditionally used to store reels of film.

In the museum you can get acquainted with the history of theater and cinema. Here there are such rare exhibits as a camera obscura; the first film projector of the Lumiere brothers, which appeared in the 19th century; as well as optical illusions created with the help of mirrors and the play of light.

I absolutely loved this museum. Very clearly laid out. Lots to see and do. Had great fun playing with the digitised magic lantern images. Lots of short films to see. Friendly staff, and a really interesting exhibition on the spectator.

Unless your doing a BA in film.... you'd be lost on what there are hundreds of cameras and paraphernalia... the interactive pieces were great though... and there was an exhibition of female actresses on the ground floor too.

You start on the third floor and work your way down to the ground floor with each floor revealing new secrets about the art of cinematography. It is a seamless experience and one that you will never forget. The next tie I'm in Girona this will be the first place I will visit again.
