Surprising!

We went to the museum because it was free with the city card. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it! I really enjoyed looking at the movie costumes and props!

You need to give at least 1:30 hours here to enjoy it. There are 8 rooms to see from the scenes of movie to model of characters from famous Hollywood movies like X men, Harry Potter and Alien. Miniature are amazing look so real.

We spent a good couple of hours here on November 18th and I could happily have spent much longer browsing through the full size film sets, costumes, props and miniature sets which this amazing museum offers. When we visited, there was an exhibition about the animation 'Ma Vie de Courgette' which was really interesting and impressive. At only €8 per... More

Loved seeing the movie sets, props and costumes. Almost all of which from films most of us have heard of so it is good fun to see the things you have seen on screen. The miniatures upstairs are just incredible, beautiful and the craftsmanship so impressive. Really loved this place and would highly recommend a visit. Good value for money... More

I did not really want to go inside, but my friend persuaded me to come in and finally it was really interesting. We definitely enjoyed it. You can see many of the decorations, which were used in famous films, masks and on the top floor miniatures as well. It all looked so real. You will feel like in a different... More

Musee Miniature et Cinema looked more interesting from the outside than the inside. But that's just me due to fascination with architecture :-)

Simply one of the nicest museums I have ever seen! Admire the world of miniatures in the rooftop, get frightened by moving Alien Queen in the 5th part! Feel drawn in the plot of the Perfume movie in the basement!

The film props and sets are really interesting - and fun to see! Great for all the film buffs out there! However, I did not think I would be as enchanted by the miniatures as I was. They are truly exceptional - I could have spent hours staring into them and examining the detailed work that has gone into them.... More
