Not quite on the radar screen of tourism I guess, this museum holds one of human's most interesting discoveries - photos and videos and film !
The Lumiere brothers were genius and deserve to be mentioned in every school book !
Not sure though anybody takes notice and also not sure that many people visit this museum. It is a jewel in all aspects, because it shows original machines to make pictures move so to speak and one can even use some of them !!!
it is just fascinating to see how a new ground breaking technology was developed and stunned people who first saw this jaw dropping magic !
Today of course we consider this a commodity but to get exposed to how it all started puts a fresh new perspective on our own modern world - we should treasure a lot more what people in the past had the courage and determination to pursue their ideas for the sake of excitement, exploration into the unknown and discovery. This museum gives all of that to witness ! go and visit !!!!!

Lovely house which was the home of the Lumieres, but also now a fascinating museum of the earliest days of cinema. Excellently curated and well worth the effort

The museum occupies the house built by one of the Lumière brothers and is adjacent to what was their huge factory, where they made photographic papers and other materials, prints and films. It displays a great variety of their photos and films, equipment, packaging, etc. Not to be missed!

Easy to find by metro or tram. Visit is 45 mins. 2 floors. Old villa, good audio tour. Shows the very interesting technical side to film making. Good bistro 50m away.
