Kunsthal Rotterdam offers an accessible (inter)national programme of exhibitions and is a standard bearer for the city, partly because of the spectacular building designed by Rem Koolhaas. The Kunsthal stages exhibitions with subjects and artists that get little or no coverage elsewhere in the country.
Right in the throbbing heart of Rotterdam lies the Maritime Museum, the oldest nautical museum in the Netherlands. For generations the museum has been informing its visitors about the Netherlands’ impressive maritime history, with a special place for the international port of Rotterdam.
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
A visit to Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is a journey through the history of art. Outstanding Dutch and European works give an overview from the early Middle Ages through to the 21st century. From Bosch, Rembrandt and Van Gogh to Dali and Christo.
The city of Rotterdam’s contemporary art combined with what’s happening in the world around it. That’s what you get at TENT., a platform and exhibition space for modern art. TENT. is located on Witte de Withstraat, Rotterdam’s street of culture.
Rotterdam is a city with a distinctive and varied range of events and festivals with international appeal, from North Sea Jazz to the Summer Carnival.
