  • The expo "The Power of Masks"by fashion designer Walter van Beirendonck from Antwerpen was spectacular.A huge collection of exotic and european,modern and antique masks and info on their influence on ...  more »
  • The place is renovated in part, the temporary exhibition on the masks is presented in a contemporary way. The history of the Museum is well-told there are truly unique pieces. The Museum Café is clear and pleasant for a lunch.

  • Playful museum, combination of culture and history. Beautiful location that is certainly worth during a day of Rotterdam.

  • If a ritual mask is displayed from another culture, I'd like more information about the ritual. How is it used? What does it represent? Otherwise the exhibit is just aesthetic and not educational enough about other cultures.
  • An absolute gem of a museum - we will never forget the Powermask exhibition. Wonderfully eccentric exhibits, well curated, good cafe, excellent gift shop. Worth a journey to Rotterdam in its own right.
  • Plan about 2 hours for your visit. This is a relatively small museum, so it's feasible to really see everything! I would have liked to have more information on the exhibited pieces. There are little bookstands on display describing some of them, but for many I could not find anything. The special exhibition "Powermask" was very interesting, occupying a large space of the museum. It's got a more fun and modern atmosphere with some amusing background sounds. The rest of the museum definitely has a more hush-hush feel to it.
  • Definitely following the less is more philosophy this great museum has a very nice, well presented collection. Simply one of the best I have seen this year. Be careful with your visit times though as it can get crowded.
  • Great permanent exhibition, clever, creative and interesting temporary exhibitions and events.
