History in the Harbour

Did you know that the Rotterdam Mari­time Museum is the oldest of its kind in the Netherlands?

The extensive collection sheds light on our maritime history using regularly changing contemporary exhibitions. From the prehistoric dugout to the high tech offshore industry.

“Hop aboard and come on a journey through our maritime past and present.”

This museum is highly recommended for adults and children alike. With the Professor Splash activities, children can find out all about maritime life. They can get to know different ships, the work in the port and how freight is shipped all over the world. They can also get down to some work loading and unloading goods and swabbing the decks. There are additional children’s activities such as treasure hunts and workshops during school holidays.

Hey, did you know?

The Maritime Museum stands in the oldest and biggest museum port in the Netherlands. There is an extensive collection of historic ships and cranes right where it all started.
