Deutsche Kinemathek was established in 1963 as an archive of films. In 2000 they relocated it to the Filmhaus in Potsdamer Platz leading to the permanent exhibition Television of the Deutsche Kinemathek in 2006, a forerunner to the Museum of Film and Television.

If you have an interest in the history of film and television in Germany, you’ll want to check out this museum. Highlights of your visit include the Multimedia time tunnel where you can journey through the history of television in East and West Germany and the mirror room where you can view a television show on a gigantic 8-metre tall mirrored wall.

The Marlene Dietrich Collection showcases both costumes and personal items belonging to the famous actress from Berlin.

Experience the jerky motion pictures from the days when movies had no sound and see the first movies with sound that debuted in the 1930s.

On the ground floor, a large shop offers film literature, DVDs, books and current novels about Berlin.

Museum of Film and Television is located within easy walking distance of Potsdamer Platz U-Bahn or S-Bahn station.

5 Star Rating 9 Euros entrance fee for the adults, free for the childeren. You start your tour from the third floor, if you stuck on the details much in the beginning you might become tired till the end. Save your energy for Metropolis and Marlene Ditrich sessions.

5 Star Rating Another interesting museum. Well organised and very modern. I was really surprised by various collections of television and film from silent to very modern tech one, from WWII to new all kind of history is there. History of German cinema is been told with details. This is very interesting space for film lovers. The most I like is mirror room. It’s worth to visit if you’re in Berlin.

4 Star Rating A nice museum and experience, they have a really nice mirror installation which you can take really nice photos at. There are a lot of old historical clips, props and things to see. 4 stars since I don't think this 1 hour tour is worth 9 euro that's all, but it may be my taste, don't let my opinion hold you back!

5 Star Rating One of the Best places I've visited here in Berlin. Along with Berlin Dungeon and the Botanic Garden, this is in my top list. If you're a fan of movies, TV, and classic cinema, i recommend this place 100%. It's just out of this world. They delicate way the put everything into place, the way they show you the history, is just... No words!!! I will continue visiting this place again to take some more/better pictures, because you cannot be tired of good things like this!
