Filmmuseum Düsseldorf

Film museum

The Filmmuseum Düsseldorf gives an exciting into the world of movies, spanning from its earliest beginnings to present day.

Its permanent exhibition (approx. 2,200m²) conveys a lively history of film, and presents a selection of rare vintage film technology. Camera obscuras and laterna magicas from the 1880s, film projectors and cameras from early 20th century to present day, set models, stage design, props and costumes can be marvelled at. A replica film studio and a special effects section give an insight into actual movie making. The visitor will also witness production processes and the impact of film on everybody’s life.

Aside from its permanent exhibition the Filmmuseum comprises a vast archive, a library and a cinema with daily screenings. One of only four remaining Welte-Cinema organs (built in 1928) is used to accompany silent movies.

The Filmmuseum Düsseldorf also curates temporary exhibitions which travel nationwide and internationally.
