Access to the Maritime Museum and all its current exhibitions
  • Learn all about the Netherlands' close relationship with the sea in this historic seafaring museum
  • Explore six centuries of sailing, then climb aboard some nautical giants in the Maritime Museum Harbour
  • Discover a world of exploration and discovery with the hands-on, child-friendly exhibition, Professor Splash

In a country that's technically underwater, navigating the sea is a pretty big deal. Rotterdam's Maritime Museum brings the port city's seafaring past, present, and future to life. As well as engaging hands-on exhibitions, the museum features an open-air museumharbour, where you can see some of history's greatest ships, then climb aboard for yourself!

The Rotterdam Maritime Museum was founded way back in 1874, and has served as a tribute to all things nautical ever since! Inside, you'll find 1 million artifacts, celebrating six centuries of watery history.

Its world-class collection explores the impact the maritime world has on our lives and showcases the many masterpieces the Dutch shipping industry has contributed to the world. You can then see some of these historical ships in their natural environment (the water) as you explore the Maritime Museum Harbour.

As you travel through history, you'll learn all about the forgotten stories from onboard these mighty vessels, and younger visitors can get wet and wild with Professor Splash.

Don't forget to visit the workshops in the Leuvepaviljoen. The blacksmith regularly gives demonstrations and workshops there.I n the winter months, from November to April, the historic ships and cranes are closed. The quay and museum jetty will remain accessible.

L’accueil n’est pas très clair, nous avons commencé à visiter l’exposition sans que personne ne contrôle quoi que ce soit, donc nous aurions pu tout aussi bien ne pas dépenser cet argent pour nos tickets (que nous regrettons). Nous avons tenté l’expérience off shore mais c’est une cour de récréation dans un cube, impossible de faire quoi que ce soit car tout est monopolisé par un tas de bambins souvent mal élevés. Nous nous sommes par la suite ré dirigés vers l’exposition après être descendus de nous même faire valider nos billets. Pas grand chose à voir à part des maquettes et des photos de gens, pas beaucoup d’explications en anglais. L’exposition au deuxième étage est pire, on n’y voit que des maquettes de bateaux et des tableaux anciens. Franchement nous sommes sûrement passés à côté du concept mais une visite des plus inutile (et chère)

Very new museum with state of the art exhibits on the North Sea oil industry. Excellent gallery about cruise ships and much else besides. I enjoyed a very interesting visit.
