EYE Film Museum
EYE is the only museum in the Netherlands that is exclusively dedicated to film and the moving image. EYE exhibits film as art, entertainment, cultural heritage, and a conveyer of information. It offers exhibitions and corresponding film programs with a keen eye for current, historical and artistic developments, paying particular attention to young people as well. In addition to films for children and their families, EYE organizes educational programs and activities for children and adults alike.
The museum’s basement offers visitors of all ages the opportunity to search through EYE’s digitized collection in an interactive way. The museum store features a wide assortment of film paraphernalia, while the restaurant and café offers a breathtaking view of the waterfront.
