Deutsches Filmmuseum (German Film Museum)

Deutsches Filmmuseum (German Film Museum) Review

Germany's first museum of cinematography, set in a historical villa on "museum row" on the Sachenhausen side of the river Main, offers visitors a glimpse at the history of film, with artifacts that include "magic lanterns" from the 1880s, costume drawings from Hollywood and German films, and multiple screens playing film clips. Interactive exhibits show how films are photographed, given sound, and edited, and let visitors play with lighting and animation. A theater in the basement screens every imaginable type of film, from historical to avant-garde.
