Plan my route


Eye Filmmuseum is located on IJpromenade, a cycling and pedestrian path where mopeds and scooters are not allowed. Please remember to park them before the bridge across the canal.

Car route and parking

Eye does not have a parking garage. The closest indoor parking right next to Eye is A'DAM Parking, below the adjacent A'DAM Tower. Use Eye Filmmuseum as navigation address. Please note: the number of available parking spots is very limited. Would you like to secure a parking spot? It is possible to book in advance at Parking Centrum Oosterdok and Parkeergarage IJDock. These parkings are on the other side of the IJ, near station Amsterdam Centraal, and approximately a 20-minute walk (including ferry).

Accessible parking

There are two parking spots for people with a disabilty in the A'DAM Tower parking garage. Please take the exit 'A'DAM Tower' which has an automatic door to outside.

Please note:

Due to construction activities, (the area around) Eye may be difficult to reach. We advise you to follow the temporary yellow traffic diversion signs to avoid unnecessary detours. Before you set off on your journey, check for roadworks.

Eye Collection Centre

Eye Collection Centre is located in the Buiksloterham district in Amsterdam North, at Asterweg 26.

When you arrive at Central Station, take the exit on the IJ side, from there the ferries depart.

From the ferry, the Collection Centre is a 15-20 minute walk, or about 5 minutes by bike. Walk or cycle past Eye Filmmuseum via Overhoeksparklaan, Bundlaan, Grasweg to Asterweg. The Collection Centre is located halfway between the Grasweg and Distelweg stops of bus 38.

When travelling by moped/scooter, go straight from the ferry onto Buiksloterweg, Ranonkelkade. Take the first left over the canal and then turn right onto Docklandsweg which becomes Asterweg. When travelling by car, enter Asterweg 26 in your GPS. You can park on the street.
