Museum Introduction a Film by Karien Mulder

Narrator and Collector Akram Miknas

Curator and Script Pierre Patau

Since the earliest days of civilisation, man has been fascinated with the concept of capturing movement. The Moving Image Museum is one of only a handful of museums in the world focusing on the history of the moving image, and is the only museum of it’s kind in the Middle East.

Housing the private collection of Mr. Akram Miknas, which he has accumulated over twenty-five years, the Moving Image Museum was born out of Mr. Miknas’ wish to share his collection with the public, hoping to inspire and educate the region with an exhilarating part of history.

Throughout the Moving Image Museum, visitors will find numerous interactive features, allowing guests of all ages to fully experience the rich history by viewing and interacting with objects such as peeping into an eighteenth century Dutch peepbox viewer, or turning the reel of an early twentieth century mutoscope to see the flicker effect.
