The interactive exhibition for movie fans


It’s film time at the Technisches Museum Wien from mid-October 2019 onwards.

SPECIAL EFFECTS tells the story of special effects in the film industry, from preproduction right through to the screening in the cinema theatre.

Across more than 500 m² of exhibition space the interactive special exhibition from the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie looks at movie special effects from their very beginnings with Georges Méliès through to the present. The history of film is told from the aspect of special effects, from the first analogue possibilities such as the use of make-up and simple misdirection tricks to the very latest in digital effects. An interactive film studio has also been recreated so young visitors can explore their own film and media skills. A wide-ranging accompanying programme rounds off the exhibition offer during the theme year 2019/2020.
