Guided tour: The History of German Film: A Tour through the Museum

Costumes and props, photographs, film scripts, sketches and designs of sets and models, cameras and film footage – film history is brought to life by a wide range of objects in the Permanent Exhibition. In twelve rooms, the museum recounts the beginnings of German cinema, of early film stars and classics (e.g., DAS CABINET DES DR. CALIGARI and METROPOLIS), of the golden era of German cinema during the Weimar Republic, and its misuse under National Socialism. The exhibition portrays the situation of German filmmakers and artists living in exile, and on their return after World War II. Two rooms are devoted to German film from the postwar period to the present. A central theme of the exhibition is dedicated to Marlene Dietrich’s estate.
