It is not the greatest museum, it is quite small, but it presents old equipment of cinema making which is quite interesting. I went there for the exposition on Clouzot so I did not stay in the museum too long. But the exposition was very...More

They finally found a suitable use for this odd building that was a useless white elephant for many years. Now a major cultural institution. Watch for special expositions on the subject of film. They are terrific. Lots of films shown here.

This is niche museum, suitable only for hard core cinephiles. If you know the work of the French New Wave and are familiar with the works of Truffaut, Godard, and Resnais then this museum may intrigue you. If you know the history behind the museum...More

This is a must see for any cinephile! It isn't very large, but that didn't keep us from looking at every single piece of equipment/costume/replica. We spent about 2 hours here, including the bookshop (which was mainly stocked with French books) I actually took notes,...More

Alfred Hitchcock was mates with the owner of the museum circa 1960's and donated a very important prop in 1960! It'll be a spoiler for you if you've not since the film before you see this prop though. There was a bunch of other cool...More

The museum is in an early Gehry designed building which, outside, is showing wear and needs a bit of a clean. Apparently it was not intended as the home of French Cinema but its first use failed shortly after it was opened in 1994 and...More

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
