The permanent exhibition of Deutsche Kinematek, Museum für Film und Fernsehen, focuses on its two defining media, film and television, from their origins to the present. The visitor can fathom how the pictures learned to walk, since the Filmhaus shows the history of movie theatres from the first motion on screen to the digital age.

In the vast film archive of Deutsche Kinemathek you find copies of movies, placards, scripts, fotos, prop designs and of course film both silent and with sound. The important Marlene Dietrich Collection alone, preserving the estate of Marlene Dietrich, is worth a visit.

In addition to the usual guided tours and workshops, the Filmhaus offers young visitors special programmes, such as the “Trick und Technik” tour on the subject of animated film.

A cool birthday with the production of your own short animated film is also possible in the Film Museum.
