It was huge and really good. Everything was explained in detail and they didn't miss anything. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it takes time to explore the while place and it's only open till 6pm. So we had to go through the last two parts quickly. Anyways the staff was very friendly and guided us through the whole thing. I was there with my grandparents and it was tough for them to walk but the hospitality made us ignore that fact. Excellent Job at the Museum.
Excellent exhibits capture many aspects of the magic of cinema. One could easily spend half a day learning about the history and people involved with Indian cinema. You can also see the cameras, sound gear, editing, and other cinema equipment used through the decades, and learn how they operate. A Children's Film Studio lets kids experience aspects of movie making. Note that cell phone photography is permitted (no flash), but taking photos with other types of cameras is strictly prohibited. The website mentions a 4 p.m. film showing, but don't count on this--the projector wasn't working when I visited. My main complaint is that the foreigners admission is Rp. 500; that's 25 times the Indian price! Children up to age 12 are free. Staff recommend starting with the history exhibits in the historic Gulshan Mahal, then proceeding the the four floors of exhibits in the towering glass-walled new building.
