Overview

SE-MA-FOR MUSEUM OF ANIMATION Se-ma-for Museum of Animation is one of the most interesting cultural institutions in Lodz. It has been established to promote animation, the work by Se-ma-for Studio, which has won the Academy Award twice, and broadly defined visual art. Based on Museum of Fairy Tales, opened in 2008, Se-ma-for Museum of Animation departed from the traditional museum form and become modernised with the usage of the latest technologies. Today the museum does not present static exhibitions, but it shows the animation art that we can touch and feel. THE WHOLE WORLD OF FAIRY TALES Here you can meet some of Se-ma-for's cult characters - Teddy Floppy-ear (Teddy Floppy-ear), Pik Pok the Penguin, Peter, but SMA also wants to show the most interesting productions from all over the world. The fragments of scenography, animation puppets and different animation techniques certainly will be interesting for audience of all ages. The visitors will be able to, among other things, learn the secrets of the Academy Award winners - "Tango" and "Peter & the Wolf." MULTIMEDIALLY, INTERACTIVELLY The content of the exhibitions are created in accordance with the newest idea of a participatory museum. Multimedia desktops, three-dimensional exhibitions, storyboards, dubbing of the fairy tales or play of light - these fragments of Se-ma-for Museum of Animation easily engage into playing together. Every group's stop takes place at short films' projections in our own private Se-ma-for Cinema. The rules of multimedia, interactivity and participation allow to engage into exhibition both from the perspective of the visitor and a creator as they inspire to deepen knowledge and maybe even to create one's own production. HOW ANIMATION IS BORN Apart from the exhibition, the museum offers also a variety of workshops for different age groups. Under the eye of Se-ma-for professionals you can, among other things, learn how to create stop motion animation, learn pixilation technique or build your own animation puppet. A rich educational and pedagogical offer is a wonderful continuation of the journey begun in SMA, stimulating creativity and developing the artistic skills of the participants.

Excuse to say, but my imppression was not too positive. Very poor exhibition with small amount of specimens. If not sentiment, this value will be poorer.More

Very cute museum specially for people familiar with some of the work that the museum is presenting. We enjoyed the tour (English) and at the end you can make your own movie and watch one of their cartoons.

If you're interested in cinematography, this is a place for you. Many old cameras, items from Polish TV stories for kids and many others create great atmosphere of "the film".

If you are an animated movies lover, you cannot miss this place. A museum of Polish animation presents some history, tells the funny stories about the favourite movies or characters, shows the details how these movies were created. It is a great attraction for everyone.
