Legacies and donations

Without you, there's no Eye Filmmuseum. Would you like to donate or bequeath to Eye? Or maybe you have a special last wish or want to organise a memorial ceremony in Eye?

Legacies provide essential support to the museum and help us, among other things, to protect the Dutch cinematic heritage for future generations to enjoy.


We are very grateful for every contribution and make purchases, research, exhibitions, educational and restoration projects possible. As an ANBI ("Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling"), Eye is exempt from payment of gift and inheritance tax. Your donation will fully benefit Eye.

Special requests or memorial ceremonies

Do you have a special wish that we can help you with? For example, would you like to see your favourite film with your loved ones in one of our cinemas? Possibly supplemented with the opportunity to have a private reception afterward. Eye can also accommodate memorial ceremonies.

Contact us

We are happy to discuss special requests with you. Please contact Hester Barkey Wolf:
