Amsterdam's film museum

Formerly known as the Filmmuseum when housed in the Vondelpark, this institution is adored by national and international film fans, as Eye Filmmuseum 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 Filmmuseum also acts as a national archive of film, representing the entire history of cinema. You can quietly sit down and pick out classic movies to watch in booths. The dedicated museum spaces host temporary exhibitions of film memorabilia, art and other unique items.

Relaxing by the water

Offering so much more than a great spot to catch a film, the Eye boasts a café and restaurant in a beautiful waterside setting. In summertime, you can soak up more direct sunlight than anywhere else in the city.

I amsterdam City Card

Eye Filmmuseum is free to visit with the I amsterdam City Card, but for some of the exhibitions there is an additional surcharge.
