Rotterdam: Museum of World Cultures

Rotterdam: Museum of World Cultures

Book your entry ticket to the Wereldmuseum in Rotterdam to experience a world-class collection comprised of more than 83,000 artifacts representing cultures in the past up to the present. Witness over 100 years of collecting by Rotterdammers for Rotterdammers. Experience this magnificent collection and the museum in a new light thanks to being reorganized and remodeled in 2019, ensuring that all the facilities are of the highest standard. Enjoy an experience perfect for the whole family with the newly developed and now fully reopened children’s museum. Along with its thousands of cultural artifacts on display, contemporary fashion, contemporary art, design, and items from popular culture will eventually be added to the collection. Wereldmusuem is located in one of Rotterdam’s most iconic buildings: the majestic building by the Maas River, originally built for the Royal Yacht Club. The members of the club’s board, including scientist and globetrotter Elie van Rijckevorsel, originally used the building to display objects they had collected on their travels. Van Rijckevorsel’s collection largely formed the basis of Wereldmuseum’s collection. Over 50% of Rotterdam’s residents have culturally diverse roots. The traditions and customs they brought with them a century ago have become increasingly integrated into local culture and are an integral part of the wonderfully diverse city that Rotterdam has since become.

This was a great way to see, and learn about the city of Rotterdam. We did a lot of walking and took our time so it took us a few hours. The puzzles are challenging, but not impossible. The way it links into Google maps to help you find your way is really cool. If you do go the wrong way and walk too far (because you didn't pay attention to the guided directions) Rotterdam's public transport network will come to your rescue. Definitely recommend doing this.

Really enjoyable, excellent way to see the sights - bit surprised that the Markthal wasn't included , but it's easy to spot from the cube houses.

Some of the puzzles are difficult but solvable. It was worth it just to avoid wandering aimlessly around the city. It was a lot of fun.

Not only our teenage daughters, but also we parents learned a lot about the city and we all had fun!

This way you can see places you wouldn't go to on your own 😀
