Filmmuseum Düsseldorf

Located in the heart of the old town, the Filmmuseum Düsseldorf (Düsseldorf film museum) was founded in 1993. As an interactive museum, it offers exciting access to the world of cinema, from its origins to the present day. Within the museum, the history of cinema is retraced over 2200 square meters and a selection of rare technical devices is presented, starting from the very first history of cinematography. You can admire dark rooms dating back to 1880, movie projectors and cameras from the early 20th century to the present day, set designs, decorations, props and costumes. The visitor is also presented and explained the production processes and the influence that cinema has on our life. In addition to the permanent collection, the Filmmuseum includes a vast archive, a library and an internal cinema with daily screening of cinematic events. There is a copy of the only three "Welte" cinemas still in conservation: it dates back to 1929 and is regularly used for the projections of silent films.
