Since 1981, the Filmmuseum Potsdam has resided in the Marstall next to the rebuilt city palace, today the seat of the Brandenburg State Parliament, in Potsdam's historic centre. The building was erected in 1685 as an electoral orangery. Since then the building has experienced an eventful history with different uses. Since 2011 the museum belongs to the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF.

As Germany's oldest film museum, the museum focuses on the more than 100-year history of the largest European media centre in Babelsberg, very close to Berlin. With international special exhibitions on Charlie Chaplin, Romy Schneider or Federico Fellini and guests such as Mike Leigh, Carlos Saura or Ken Loach, the museum attracts visitors from all over the world.

The permanent exhibition "Traumfabrik. 100 Years of Film in Babelsberg" on the history of the media location Babelsberg shows the process of film creation from the first idea to the premiere in an experience-oriented and entertaining way. In seven themed rooms, visitors can immerse themselves in the atmosphere of filmmaking and be actors, editors or musicians themselves. Changing exhibitions open the view to various media topics. The in-house, night-blue cinema invites to film series with international guests or silent film screenings with live accompaniment at the Welte cinema organ. The growing collections of Babelsberg film history are a treasure trove for visitors and exhibition organizers.

The Film Museum Potsdam is one of 4 participating museums of theMuseum combi-ticket.
