As of September 2017 this museum is under renovation but is still open. It's under renovation in several exhibit areas. The open area is quite small but still worth a visit. Women of Rotterdam was the theme during our visit. The exhibits are very informative...More

A small but deeply poignant museum with one of the best interactive audio visual films I have seen. Very powerful and many artefacts to see. English titten guides are available on request.

This museum has focus on WW2 and explains why the centre of Rotterdam is so beautiful and so modern. Central Rotterdam has taken the opportunity to become an amazing city in direct contrast to Amsterdam.

The place is hard to find. It is behind the state house. Although very small there are some good ideas and exhibits here. The positive is a very affable staff. The guys standing around are great. The people who designed this are totally incompetent. Firstly...More
