Welcome to the Kids Zone!

On this part of the website you can find out about the history of the moving image. Our collections in the museum show the changes that have happened over the last two hundred years in the medium of visual entertainment. We have certainly come a long way from the shadows, mirrors and puppets involved in some of the earliest experiments with moving images!
