This history of film

The exhibition contains some of the 30,000 pieces that make up the private collection of Tomàs Mallol.

This is one of the few museums to offer a journey across the 500 years of the history of images. Here you can discover the predecessors and origins of film, as well as how it developed from its creation through to the arrival of television. Of the different exhibits, special mention should be made of the projector used by the Lumière brothers for their first public projection.
