  • Very interesting museum! I loved the material exhibition and the writing accompanied with it, very well done! Oh also don't miss their bookshop! It's very worth the visit too!
  • Not a traditional museum. As the name suggests, this institute offers a rich collection of insights into the modern arts (from architecture to daily human life). I visited 3 exhibitions and enjoyed all 3 of them.
  • Visited in May 2017. The exhibition about screensavers was unexpectedly interesting.
  • The exhibitions are merit but I wish the information and the exhibitions themselves can be more interactive.
  • Their exhibitions are experimental, bold, creative, expansive and with many profound meanings. I couldn't agree more to the use of the word "Institute" instead of "Museum". I'd be so proud of this place if I had been living in Rotterdam.
