  • The Museum eye only externally by boat we visited I have to say it is a spectacular building with the shape of an eye, definitely a pleasant memory.

  • A magnificent building that stands out by its quality of design and its architectural gesture in Amsterdam North landscape. A very nice café opens on the Ij Bay. It's a film with thematic exhibitions for lovers and projections in cycles related to directors, movements, themes...

  • The building is a great pieve of contemporary architecture and it is nice to get there with the ferry and walk around. Internally a very nice cafe but the museum on the other hand feels a bit empty. However if you want to see a movie there are screenings at certain times, better to check online what is on if you are interested.
  • Worst food I've had in a long while. Duck confit drowning in a tasteless sauce of hard beans with a piece of blood sausage that was not much more than a piece of fat. Felt like university canteen. There are good restaurants in Amsterdam; this place is not worth the high prices you may expect.
  • Exceptional, building with pleasantly high ceiling, a fine terrace and a good view over the IJ and the city. The restaurant serves a nice meal for all tastes and in all sizes. Perfect in combination with a visit to the museum or a rare movie.
  • Beautiful location with a very unique building and a perfect view on the water in front of the station. This is the perfect Amsterdam experience. The museum offers you great movies and the restaurant/bar allows you to fully enjoy the place. The area outside is very lively and with a lot of bars and restaurants.
  • Great food and professional staff. Definitely not a budget place, but worth it. Make sure to check out the terrace if the weather allows it.
