This museum is packed full of film memorabilia taking you through the history of cinema, with some hands-on exhibits. A really impressive collection and I learnt lots of stuff I didn't know. Well worth a visit.

On a quick day trip to Girona, the wife and I stopped in for what we thought would be a dinky little museum and boy were we shocked! Great time!
