  • The only good thing was, that entrance was free, though a waste of time to go. The building itself is fine architecture and it is nice to view the waterside.  more »

  • Great place! You can get there by the ferry which is a short and breezy ride. The museum is right on the water with a restaurant/Cafe with huge glass windows looking right out to the water. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would recommend getting a combination museum and film ticket, there are lots of films to choose from. The museum is nice for a short visit, and great for film lovers.
  • Unless you really really like film art or are interested in one of the exhibits, the museum part will not be the thing that brings you here. There is a cinema that you can each indie films along with some classics as well as a cafe with one of the most beautiful sights in Amsterdam! You can even sit outside on the dock area and enjoy a cold beer with friends.
  • Lovely contemporary building visible from afar and accessible by short free ferry ride from Central Station. During my visit the Martin Scorsese exhibition was showing. You can also watch films or have a meal and drink at the restaurant. Unusually the gift shop also has eco accessories as well as DVDs and books. Best of all the frontage has huge windows from which you can see ferries coming and going and the rear of Central Station.
  • A fantastic building, both inside and outside. A nice little trip with the boats brings you within walking distance to the Film Museum where you can easily spend a lot of time. After the exhibitions you can eat a nice meal with a great view towards the city center.
  • The EYE is a cinema much like many in this mecca for cinema, Amsterdam, as so much of its programming is interesting films of the last few years. Another such cinema wasn't really needed, but clearly to get the funding necessary to move its "Film Museum", the name of the former location, to this nice modern building, it had to guarantee the numbers of people attending. So, at the expense of the history of film: all that it was previously showing from the 90s, 80s, 70s, 60s, 50s, 40s, 30s and 20s, we have a cinema in programming similar to lots of others. When you compare the average quality of the films that could be picked from many decades compared to the quality of films from only a few years, of course now the level is much lower. Worse though is the abandonment of film history by what is the former Film Museum under another name. (It still shows films from earlier but the proportion is massively reduced from that of a decade before the move.)
