Museum of the Moving Image

I spent 4 hours in the Museum of the Moving Image today and could have blissfully spent more, but I was tired and they were closing. This is a fantastic place, spread on 3 futuristic-looking white levels.

It’s choc-full with everything from magic lanterns to Cher’s wig worn in that movie about witches…

There is a comprehensive exhibition about the history of movie-making, but what I found most remarkable was the focus on music videos – a real eye-opener. Also, there are plenty opportunities to have fun because of all the interactive choices – you can choose the soundtrack to Vertigo, create your own animation, dance your way in a light show, or even dub Babe… the sky’s the limit, as they say.
