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.


On the first floor Eye Filmmuseum presents four different exhibitions a year with unique works on the cutting edge of film and the visual art.
On the ground floor you can discover the history of film. The presentation takes you past the 360° cinema, the Pods – miniature cinemas - and along interactive installations such as Flipbook and the Green Screen, where visitors can create a so-called “thumb cinema”, and can even appear in a movie scene.

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.
