Amazing! It's really interesting to see and learn about film in the early years. How it changed up till now. It's beautify designed. Even if not being familiar with German movies you will love it if you love cinema. Price is good too.

Wow, what a surprising and interesting and extensive exhibit of German movies starting in the silent era and leading up to modern day films and directors, also including TV ( ie Babylon Berlin!). You could wander through these fascinating exhibits relatively quickly for an overview but if you want to dig in and watch some of the Film excerpts they are showing, you could spend a day here (which I was tempted to do)! So glad that we discovered this gem tucked away in the Sony building in Potsdamer Platz.

I've been fascinated by german cinema for at least a decade as a human mutant robot. I can really relate to Metropolis.

Quality museum for film buffs and pseudo wannabe film buffs (large section devoted to Metropolis for all you hipsters).

Amazing to see so much original scripts and even costumes from famous Muranau and Pabst films. It's not very rookie friendly as I feel someone without a working knowledge of these films might not be as interested. Not a whole lot of summary write ups.

Amazing to see the model sets of how they filmed some of the silent films. Giant section devoted to Dietrich with lots of letters and props.

I'm glad I went and would highly recommend it. But if you already dont have a major interest in film I'm not sure how much you'll take away from it.

Wonderful two hours here. Informative with clearly a focus on 1895- 1945 era. History of film fascinating and depicting it from entertainment to a propaganda tool. Fascinating how the US industry was built on German Ingenuity.
Marlene Dietrich/ Fritz Lang it’s all here. If your not a history buff you might be bored.

Incredibly informative, smartly laid out museum about German cinema, covering everything from Metropolis and The Cabinet Of Dr Caligari through war propaganda and filmmakers persecuted by the Nazis (heartbreaking, honestly) through to modern day films. So, so interesting -- take your time here, there's a lot to see.

This is a real gem of a museum, which gives a fascinating insight into the development of German film-making. It is beautifully curated, and packed with a wealth of exhibits and artefacts: film-clips, photographs, scripts, production notes, set designs, camera and projection equipment, costumes and more. It also provides thought -provoking information about the different historical, political and social contexts in which film-making took place, from the inception of the industry to the present day. Very well worth a visit!

Unfortunately missed the actual museum but I just had to leave a review of the shop. They had lots of fun and quirky items along with books and movies. I could've easily spent hours in there. Great for gifts or to purchase some fun and nerdy items for yourself. In conclusion, worth a visit even if you don't go to the exhibition!

I went with my teenage son for something to do in the heat and we were blown away. The artefacts are fascinating (particularly the those linked to the early silent era) and the Marlene Dietrich collection is a must for any film buff.

The whole experience is beautifully arranged and I would highly recommend it.

Rare and interesting objects. Beautiful reconstructions and retrospectives: large and accurate. Council to visit calmly and to dedicate at least 3 hours.

Nice retreat from the heat also. Be aware that there is plenty of info in English but a lot is only in German.
