The museum is small but still interesting. You can spend 1-2 hours discovering the history of ‘Kinematographie’ and playing with different devices.

Depending on what the exhibition is, this will be a great visit for film fans. Even despite an exhibition that appeals, the rest of the museum will appeal to movie buffs. Quite quiet in the week. An un-disturbed visit.

I highly recommend visiting the museum if you're interested in doing something fun and easy. I'm just a little disappointed there were no afternoon films to watch but the cameras on display, the photos and the gift shop were all great.
