Museum Rotterdam


About us

Museum Rotterdam has two locations: one in the Timmerhuis and another at Coolhaven.

Our main location, the Timmerhuis, is the museum of the city. Located right in the centre, where the hypermodern glass and steel of the world-renowned architectural firm OMA meets the concrete and brick of the post-war reconstruction icon, the Timmerhuis. Here, unexpected combinations of historical objects and contemporary heritage tell the story of Rotterdam and its people – from settlement on the Rotte to modern multicultural metropolis.

Our second location is dedicated to the Second World War and the impact of the May 1940 bombing on Rotterdam.
