EYE is located directly opposite Amsterdam’s Central Station. After arriving at Central Station, take the exit on the north side, from where you can see the EYE building. From there, take the free ‘Buiksloterweg’ ferry across the IJ harbour.
From Amsterdam’s Central Station, a free ferry that runs 24 hours a day will take you to the other side of the IJ harbour; take the ferry that is labelled ‘Buiksloterweg’. The ferry ride takes 3 minutes. If you are travelling from Central Station, this ferry will be located on one of the two middle pontoons. When you get off the ferry in Amsterdam Noord, turn left immediately and then walk three minutes to EYE.
From Amsterdam Noord, bus 38 stops at the ‘Buiksloterwegveer’ stop (until 20:00 during evenings, and beginning at 11:00 on Sundays); this stop is right next to EYE. In addition, bus 105 (not on Sundays) and bus 109 (not in the evenings, and not on weekends) both stop at ‘Hagedoornplein’, which is a 12-minute walk from EYE.
