The Museum of Film and Television Berlin is one of six film museums in Germany. It opened in 2000 as part of the Deutsche Kinemathek, the German Film Archive and Museum for Film and Television.

The Museum of Film and Television Berlin's permanent exhibition displays exhibits from the entire span of German film and television history, including the exile of many artists to Hollywood during the Nazi era. The exhibits include posters, photos, film costumes, architectural sketches, and props. A particular focus is the actress Marlene Dietrich compiled from an extensive private collection.

In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum hosts film and television exhibitions, such as during the Berlinale. The museum also features a library with extensive collections of literature and film journals, including important early magazines like The Cinematograph, the photo-stage and the Film-Kurier. Until it moved to the film museum, the library belonged to the German Film and Television Academy (dffb).

The museum is a member of the German Kinemathekenverbund.
