  • From modern to old masyters, design and blockbuster exhibition. It is all there! Coffee shop is not much worth, but there is enough in the neighbourhood. Don't forget the garden! 
  • We would 1 museum visit during this trip and that was so this museum. Partly because of the temporary exhibition nav the 100 anniversary of Gispen (my employer). This museum gives a quiet and clear way the evolution of styles through the ages.

  • The museum has an extensive collection, allowing an adequate period can be viewed, with some familiar names. The descriptions are also interesting (and consist of more than just name and date of the painting). Finally, there are also many activities for visitors with children.

  • My favourite museum in Rotterdam. A really amazing collection of Dutch and international art. A good balance of Contemporary and more classical art. Great permanent collections and constantly new exhibitions. Can go back many many times.
  • There is an absolutely great collection to discover! A must-see of Rotterdam and also a beautiful historic landmark in a messy all-time city. Nice place also to have a light meal (actually a bit scarce menu) in its beautiful restaurant and a good coffee in its modest and modern cafeteria.
  • Probably one of the best museums in the country. Great collection ranging from the midddle ages to nowadays art in a very attractive building. Take your time to visit all corners of this building. There might be some hidden treasures you might forget.
  • Amazing out of this world art! Old masters and modern hero's!
  • This museum is amazing. Very well organized and easy to navigate through. Consider getting a Rotterdam pas.
