In History of the City, Museum Rotterdam, Stadsarchief Rotterdam and BOOR whisk you off on an extraordinary journey through time. Shipping containers crammed with authentic Rotterdam heritage offer you an experience of different historical eras.
We start with the first settlements on the Maas Estuary, and the humble beginnings of Rotterdam in the middle ages, followed by a glimpse of the wonderful second trading city of the Republic and the rapidly expanding industrial port city. And show how, after the wartime bombing, Rotterdam arises from the ashes – once more a dynamic, global city.
Today’s Rotterdammers bring the city of the past firmly into the present, with stories about their work and the historic roots of their occupations.
