  • Great for watching a movie. Not a boring place to wait. Everything was clean. the staff was friendly.  more »
  • The Museum has nothing of old. The film's story is told in a very modern and interactive. The architectural space is very well used. There are still four cinemas, mostly with Dutch films, which makes the experience even nicer. There is a cafe with savory and sweet dishes, ideal to sit and enjoy the view of the city. The ferry crossing is free and the ferries part every two minutes.

  • We were a group of friends looking to do something over the weekend and the Eye Film museum was a good option. First the view and architecture of the building is super original. As the Jester Just exh...  more »

  • I suppose for a great service dress up?? I thought this was a causal place to eat! Although the food was really nice can't be said about the staff! Maybe if I was thrown my money around I'd have got a better service. The surrounding areas are beautiful!
  • This is a cool place to come. It would be great if the staff were nicer, friendlier, more service oriented and not so snobby. If you don't fit the trendy, gorgeous people image, they make u wait at the bar and are barely civil at the entrance, even though it is actually a cinema, an exhibition space as well as a bar restaurant. This place epitomizes Amsterdam at it's snobby, unfriendly, stuck up, 'I'm not here to serve you' worst. But if you ignore the attitude and put up with the not unusual here in Amsterdam, dreadful service; it has great views, good exhibitions, clever programming, fab design.
  • Great architecture, with a small museum inside. Various films on display everyday. Worth a visit, even if just for a look in the store, restaurant and building. Easy to reach from the central station by ferry. The restaurant / cafe has a beautiful view over the skyline of Amsterdam. Reservations are needed as it is always busy.
  • The current exhibition (Feb 2018) features beautiful and surreal works by Jesper Just. I highly suggest taking a slow walk through the exhibit. The Eye also has a treasure trove of films in the Panorama exhibit on the bottom floor. If you have extra time, you can catch some very entertaining films that you may have never heard of before!
  • Nice cinema museum. I wish it could be slightly bigger. Movies in several cinemas every day. Also they have a cafe with a wonderful river view. Check it out.
