  • The (free) ferry is a real Dutch! You arrive directly on this building. The under ground and now paying... So we just took a coffee, with a great view of sunset on amsterdam. The coffee is great, markets in wood and huge ceiling height. To do!

  • Nice to see many pieces of fim and details of film equipment. Most fun is the separate "bank" where you can figure out your own film with max 3 persons and in its entirety. Fine restaurant for lunch with stunning views, both within (architecture) and outdoor (the IJ and Amsterdam)

  • Super nice place-set-a little cramped for Conference in bio facility and very cramped for lunch.

  • A very beautiful building with a great cinema experience, comfortable chairs with plenty of legroom. In addition the angle of the seating area allows you to fully look over anyone sitting in front of you without being obstructed (nice for shorter people). The cafe offers a nice view on 'T Ij.
  • The building itself is stunning. Inside there is a restaurant with a great view over the river. This is rather a cinema than a museum for me. It was so relaxing to sit down inside, listen to some very interesting information regarding cinematography with provided headphones, looking outside through the massive glasswall and to sip cappuccino.
  • Stunning architecture. Great bar with superb views. The cinema has a great selection of films. Outdoor terrace can be windy but is lovely in the sun.
  • Great modern architecture - it'd be worth a visit already just because of that. They always have something good playing. Nice expositions, too. And besides all that, they host many of the best cinema festivals in the city. Amongst them, the Imagine Film Festival, my personal favorite. Make sure to stop by the gift shop. The restaurant also serves delicious food, that you can enjoy with the great view of the city by the water. Nice local beer options as well
  • Beautiful architecture, cool exhibition and a good selection of movies to watch always. Alsoo the cafe is pretty amazing, with an awesome view and a cool atmosphere. The service was a bit slow but very sympathetic. It is fair-priced and so is the museum.
