“Too intense”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Do check on what the theme is on during your visit. As when we visited the historical documentaries on the Indonasia- Netherland connect were playing in various foreign languages. Place is a visual delight, with a large cafe sit-out.

I liked the building and I think it's a fine place to be but you only can pay with creditcard in the shop and for the film , we didn't knew that so coudn't do anything there.

Beautiful space inside and out. Really enjoyed the Quay Brothers exhibition as well as the snacks and drinks in the hip modern cafe.

“a triumph of architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

Spotted this place as it was featured in our hotel room magazine.
Wow, it was one of the highlights of our visit. My 11 year old grand daughter learned the meaning of PERSPECTIVE.
The design of the building plays with your head. It is stunning.
There was an impressive dinner menu, but we had a selection of delicious snacks, whilst enjoying the lights of Amsterdam reflected in the huge canal behind the station.
Use the free ferry boat with the locals and dogs and bicycles.

“Beautiful architecture, interesting exhibits, off-the-beaten-path films”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Worth checking out if you're a film buff.

The restaurant is not bad either. Try to sit on the terrace if you can snag a spot on a sunny day. Great views.
