Łódź Film Museum

Opened in 1986 inside Karol Scheibler’s extraordinary 19th-century palace, the Łódź Film Museum offers visitors two unique attractions in one. The museum itself offers a well-presented history of Polish cinema and takes plenty of hats off to the multitude of Polish film greats who studied in the city before going on to greater things, as well as numerous changing exhibitions. This is the only museum of its kind in Poland, and though badly signposted (don’t be surprised to find yourself directed to blind alleys or opening secret doors to reveal private offices), it represents a rewarding experience for fans of Polish cinema. The collection features over 50,000 items including over 12,000 film posters, art exhibits and projectors and camera equipment of every kind. Standouts include the recently renovated Fotoplastikon - a giant drum-like contraption popular in the early 20th century for showing 3D films, and the excellent exhibit devoted to animated photography featuring plenty of vintage stop-motion characters and accompanying clips. The newest exhibit in the permanent collection is called "Palace Full of Fairy Tales" and is devoted to the heroes of Polish cult cartoon shorts and features (Moomins, Reksio).

Having been closed for renovations during Coronavirus, the Museum has begun to reopen and you can now view the first part of the new permanent exhibition, devoted to the development of entertainment and cinema from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries until 1939. The second part of the exhibition – covering the period from 1954 to the present day – will be available to visitors from September 2021.
