The Amsterdam Film museum

Formerly known as the Filmmuseum when housed in Vondelpark, this institution is adored by national and international film fans, as EYE showcases the very best of cinematic history – often in newly restored versions. Alongside the classics, it also screens new independent releases and hosts special evenings dedicated to experimental film and other genres.

National archive

EYE also acts as a national archive of film, representing the entire history of cinema. What’s more, in special digital booths, you can quietly sit down and pick out classic movies to watch. While the dedicated museum spaces host temporary exhibitions of film memorabilia, art and other unique items.

Relaxing by the water

Not just an architecturally exciting film spot, the EYE’s café and restaurant is a beautiful waterside location for relaxing. In summertime, when the weather is nice, few places in the city enjoy more direct sunlight, from morning through till sunset.
