Why locals love it

This is the only museum in the country dedicated to the art, history, technique, and technology of the moving image. This is a perfect destination for people of all ages and interests, where you can find exhibits about gaming, the internet, television, and film.

Why you should visit it

You'll enjoy the historical as much as the the interactive portion of your visit, like playing old video games and making your own stop-motion animation. They also screen movies & TV shows, and hold Q&As with famous filmmakers. And, best of all, the museum is home to the permanent exhibition for Jim Henson's The Muppets.

Entire history of silent film. Awesome place.

It's a great biography of cinema itself, a breaking down of it's component parts. Highly recommend it to anyone thinking of being in or around film/tv as a profession, in any capacity. Plus, the Jim Henson wing is a direly needed tribute to an American original.
