Technisches Museum

Special Effects

Ever wondered how special effects are planned and how various illusions are created? And what’s behind it all in terms of both technology and budget? What sort of professions are involved? How are decisions made when it comes to choosing the right effects? And when did special effects first start wowing cinema audiences?

Across some 700 m² of exhibition space the interactive SPECIAL EFFECTS exhibition from the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie looks at movie special effects from their very beginnings with Georges Méliès right through to today’s blockbusters. We take a look behind the scenes, from pre-production to the actual cinema screening and, at the same time, find out a great deal about how special effects were developed and deployed. To complement the exhibition, the Museum has also set up a multimedia installation entitled ‘Special Effects History’.
An interactive exhibition experience on the exciting adventure world of the movies awaits!
