This museum is hosted in apalace of a former owner of one of the factories of Lodz, who had to demonstrate his wealth. The original and recovered rooms are impressive. The cinema content of the museum is weird. There are a lot of old machines...More

I really enjoyed this museum! The bottom levels have old film equipment, which is really fun to look at, although the signage is all in Polish. There are also rooms to walk through in the old palace, which I didn't find that interesting, but if...More

Given Lodz’s place in the history of Polish film I was expecting a more dynamic display. The museum is a collection of rooms featuring old film making equipment and projectors that appear to have been placed in a random manner with no narative.

There is very very little attempt to translate the signage into other languages, even English. There are a couple of token translations but not enough to be informative. You mostly end up walking around looking at old film kit you know little about and there’s...More

Maybe it's a bit confussing at the beginning especially...More

Also know as the Museum of Cinematography or Muzeum Kinematografii w Łodz. It helps if you know a bit about Polish films and many of the signs are only in Polish, but still worth going if you don't know Polish. Worth it for both the...More

Firstly it's important to know, that it's not only the film museum. Main part of the exhibition are interesting cinematic devices, history, photos. For Poles it is exciting to see past animated stories from childhood. Additionally the exhibition is located in Karol Scheibler Palace. We...More

If you're a film historian or buff it's a great museum. Lodz has a rich history in film, great directors and cinematographers came out of the Lodz Film School.
