Rather bizarre museum. It would be more like a personal collection of old artifacts rather than a film museum. Interesting for those who like the history of old projectors. A floor dedicated to pictures of old filmstars, but not modern ones. A bit quirky

To our surprise it appears that Girona has been used as background for many films including "Game of Thrones". As is the norm these days in Spain the various towns and cities have invested in many museums and Girona is no exception. This little gem kept us interested and entertained for nearly two hours. Pleasant lady on reception explained to... More

My husband used to work in cinemas so we had to visit this museum. It covered all the technical advancements as well as showing how they were used which makes it interesting for most ages

This is a wonderful museum with a lot of fascinating old stuff...all about movies and movie making. There is a small cost to see it, but well worth the cost. The layout is well considered and it spans the development and invention of a lot of technology involved in making movies. Well maintained and thought out.

Stumbled upon this while walking around the old town and found it a very nice space to look at the various films, tv and advertisements which have used this lovely city in their making. Very interesting place to spend an hour whilst sight seeing.

I've been to a lot of museums related to film before, especially one of them being my favorite back home in NYC (Museum of Moving Image). This museum wasn't huge, but it was worth it. I loved how it went into detail about the history of film and in chronological order as you walked through. You can easily stay there... More

they have all old cinema things, like the ancient cameras and stuff, two floors for this boring stuff and just one corners for the modern movies, with 4 objects: batman mask, the head of the alien of mars attacks and the kriptonite of superman. Complete sadness

Girona isn't a big city, so I just came here to fill up my day... And it was cheap. But man, was I wrong. This museum is amazing. Starting with shadow play and the camera obscura, all the way to modern cinema and technology. This museum thaught about all the details, fun for young & old, a lot of things... More
