The Vondelpark pavillion is home to the national Film museum with its collection of 46,000 film titles, 35,000 posters and 450,000 photographs. The complete art deco interior of the former Amsterdam cinema Parisien has even been moved into one of the rooms.

The museum shows more than 1,000 films a year ranging from silent classics to rare prints. Weather permitting, there are outdoor screenings in the summer.

The museum's Vertigo café is still a good place for a sundowner, but very popular on balmy summer evenings so you'll need to fight for a seat.
