Musée du Cinema Museum In Paris - Henri Langlois

The Musee du Cinema was created by a gentleman named Henri Langlois and first opened its doors in 1972.

Henri was a cinema enthusiast and this museum portrayed the history of moving pictures through to the present day and held a collection of well over 5,000 film related objects that he had accumulated.  This included movie scripts, cameras, movie sets, posters and even costumes worn by famous stars such as Marilyn Monroe.

Musée du Cinema Museum In Paris

Unfortunately he died in 1977, yet the Musee du Cinema was still housed in the Palais de Chaillot at the Place du Trocodero in the 16th Arrondissement of Paris, but a few years later the Cinémathèque Française, which was also founded by Henri Langlois decided to move the collection.

The collection then became the subject of a very unusual court case, as the Cinémathèque Française argued that this museum in Paris was unquestionably the creative work of one man and therefore protected under the law and therefore it could not be disbanded.

Unfortunately, the Musee du Cinema was destroyed by fire in the July of 1997, which was a few months before the decision was made to say that the museum should be kept in its entirety.

Therefore, as you can now gather, this is NOT one of the museums that you can now go and visit, even though there are listings for this!

However, today now at the Palais de Chaillot you can get to visit the Musee de la Marine.
