we are so lucky to have this in astoria! you could spend days here doing all the interactive stuff (make-your-own flipbook, cartoon, use the bluescreen and watch yourself on screen, do voiceovers to Wizard of Oz, Babe ...). the museum's really interesting, gives you insight into the technical aspects of moviemaking, but also allows plenty of time for the fun stuff, with movie clips, props & costumes, actor/actress anecdotes. so great, can't recommend it highly enough. my parents came here too and had a great time, so it's fun for ALL ages! the films they show here (free with admission) are good too. so much fun!
Pros: interactive,, totally fun,, instructive
Cons: overcrowded at w/e
