    A UFO has just landed in Amsterdam! Or this is probably what the architect of this sleek modern structure had in mind. It houses the EYE Film Institute Netherlands which is dedicated to preserving films screened in the Netherlands. It has several movie screens that continually show films from various periods, a restaurant, and an exhibition hall. The building was designed by Delugan Meissl Architects (who also designed the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart) and completed in 2012 just north of Amsterdam's city centre. It can be seen from across the wide canal by the Amsterdam Centraal Station. There is a free ferry that goes back and forth across the canal from behind the railway station.

    The EYE Film Instituut Nederland Filmmuseum is the continuation of the former Dutch Historical Filmarchive.
    Now you can explore the old archives or enjoy the movies being shown.

    In april 2012 the Museum moved to a new location in Amsterdam North; the so-called Shell area on the north shore of 't IJ at the Amsterdam herbour. The new museum, a design by Delugan Meissl Associated Architects, unites all the public functions in one building.

    Filmmuseum, Vondelpark

    Last year I went here for the first time, after passing it many times walking through the Vondelpark. They had some old classic "Alice" cartoons from the Disney Company in the 1930's----they had a real piano player playing the score and lots of kids in the audience having a great time! If you are a fan of old film, take the time to go to one of the showings here.

    Film museum

    by jo104 Written Aug 13, 2009

    A beautiful looking museum at the start of Vondelpark shows the film industry history from silent film days to present. Unfortunately this museum is too small and the plans are underway to move it in 2011 to North Shore of the IJ.

    They screen classic films, childrens and documentaries in a lovely art deco theatre.
    Tickets cost Eur7.80 which includes exhibitions or Eur2 for just the expo. Children are Eur5.
    There is an adjacent restaurant called Vertigo with outdoor and indoor seating see my tip under restaurants.

    Entry Mon-Fri 9am - 10.15pm & friday from 1 hour before 1st screening until close.
