EYE Film Institute Netherlands

In an eye-popping, proto-futuristic waterfront structure designed by Viennese architects Delugan Meissl, this cutting-edge museum is easily accessible, thanks to a free ferry that connects in a two-minute ride with Centraal Station. Along with restoring thousands of films (Martin Scorsese used footage from Georges Méliès films restored here in his film Hugo), the institute contains four massive screening rooms (showing a fine mix of classic and contemporary films), a large exhibition space, and a library open to the public. The EYE, whose name is a pun on the pronunciation of IJ, also organizes wonderful exhibitions about film-history-related subjects. They do not take cash, just credit or debit cards. There is also a restaurant with a waterfront terrace.
