Visited during the temporary exhibition on fashion (on for a few months more, with different sub-themes on this topic per month). The displays are very effective - including good infographics on how much wastage of materials there is. The staff throughout were friendly, approachable and...More

The building looks fabulous, but there is very little to actually see there. When I was there they had an exhibition on the history of glass, and a weird artistic feature about machines taking over the world. The main reason I went to the Nieuwe...More

There were three exhibitions on when I visited. All were of a poor standard. The place was not engaging and generally kind of flat. The building itself is quite lovely and had a really delicious (expensive) coffee out on the veranda. Go Kunstahal or Boijmans...More

A very fitting museum for Rotterdam, a city which excels at creating friendly, open, modernist spaces and architecture. The experience depends a lot on the specific exhibitions you see, and all of them are temporary, as far as I could tell - so check in...More

Total waste of time and money careless staff and no Exhibition at all. Be carefull ask to the counter what is the exhibition since you can notice that advertised exhibition does not exist during your tour between the floors. No guidance just school children activities...More
