THE MUSEUM.

The Museu del Cinema - Col·lecció Tomàs Mallol, is located at the plaça del Mercadal, near the plaça de la Constitució, and one of the main arteries of trade and leisure in the city, the carrer de Santa Clara all in the barri del Mercadal.

THE COLLECTION.

It is one of the few museums where you can journey through the 500 years of the history of images, seeing what were the predecessors and the origins of the cinema. On show are the techniques and the visual spectacles from the beginnings of the 7th art up to the arrival of television. During this journey, you will be accompanied by the Tomàs Mallol Collection, an internationally recognised collection of cinematographic and precinematographic apparatus, purchased by the Ajuntament (Girona Town Hall) in 1994.

Come and learn about the tricks which left our forefathers amazed and see the first cinema projections. You will be fascinated by the moving image spectacles that have excited spectators throughout the ages. We invite you to take a journey through the history of images: a universal language, a discourse without frontiers, a visit recommended for everyone and all ages.
