  • This cinema museum is included in the I Amsterdam Card. I regretted coming in about two hours before closing hours, it was a short time. Upstairs was an exhibition with cult films. Only then did I find out there was a floor downstairs with the permanent part about cinema that I couldn't even see. The building is also amazing, with a peculiar architecture and a beautiful view. I'd come back for sure.

  • A famous place around this region of Amsterdam because of it's weird, eye-shape like architecture. But when visiting, a whole new word of anything you can imagine about cinema and it's history. Wonder around, see, touch and feel the past and present. Look for nice movie in one of the many locations. Free ferry from Amsterdam C.S. to EYE.
  • Visiting here was a pleasant experience. I did not have much expectations upon walking in but then the people were very friendly and I got a good vibe from everyone around me. I enjoyed the art and displays.
