Eddie the Eagle Museum
Eddie the Eagle Museum is a place where you can experience the art of art, dancing, drinking and failing. A space where artists work, recycle and discover, unpretentiously trying to change a world of trial and error. The museum has a stage and a bar with bulletproof glass. Each month there is a new opening, event or performance.
Eddie “the Eagle” Edwards was an anti-hero, a man with unprecedented courage, an adventurer with an excessive nature. These qualities represent the fundamental ideas for a museum where people (big and small) have the space to just like Eddie take an uncontrolled leap into the (cultural) deep. A place in Amsterdam with a slope for known and unknown talent, where art won’t be judged on appearance. An ode to the unconventional, the stickler, a tribute to the one who dares to fail.
