Myanmar 2: Myanmar Motion Pictures Museum

The film museum of Myanmar, that is run by the Myanmar Moving Pictures Association, must be the most comprehensive film museum in all of Southeast Asia. At least, I have not seen anything in the region that can hold a candle to the scope of their collection.  The National Museum in Singapore or the Cathay museum there, or the FINAS museum in Kuala Lumpur might have better presentations, but nobody else has so much stuff on the whole national cinema of a SEA country.  It is not very modern, but the collection they have is amazing. Take a look., even though the pictures here show only a tiny part of their material.
