Good museum to see old cameras, movie projectors etc. There is a short movie you can watch in Italiannwith English subtitles showing different movies. Very interesting and good place to spend some time. Loved the God father room.

If you like cinema this is the place to go. Personal presentation, lots of stuff, rooms buildt as original movie (I loved the Godfather studio). I came to the complex only for the "museum of landing" and it was worth it to go there.

A bit out of the way really but near the station ( which is out of the way). Quite interesting but doesn't take too long to see unless you are a film nerd.

A small but entertaining museum, film lovers will appreciate it. Wish things were written in English but being in a non English speaking country, wasn't expecting it. Next to the WWII museum, so may as well hit this as well. Kitschy and fun.

This museum comes across as if put together by someone who knows very little about cinema. I was hoping to find out more about Sicilian and Italian cinema - sadly this was only in Italian and very sketchy. The film sets are kitsch fun but...More
