The EYE Film Institute Netherlands- Film Museum opened to the public on 5th April 2012, replacing the old Nederlands Film Museum facility in Vondelpark which had operated since 1974 in the historic Vondelpark Pavilion. The new custom built building overlooks the IJ harbor behind Amsterdam Central Station. This new location is in Overhoeks, Amsterdam’s new urban district named after the Overhoeks Tower on the former Shell research site.

There’s four modern auditoriums, one with 300 seats, two with 120 seats, and one with 80 seats.

There are two large exhibition areas, workrooms, a film lab, a shop, and a cafe.

The museum’s collection as of opening has 46,000 film titles, 35,000 posters, 450,000 stills, 1,900 periodicals and 30,000 books.

Queen Beatrix presided over a special opening of the EYE on 3rd April 2012. It cost forty million euros to build.
