Absolutely brilliant. The 3 euro entrance fee to the museum house is well worth it. Amazing buildings built by a totally genial architect

Nice architecture, worth the time visiting. To visit inside there's a 3 euro fee, but the attendant charging it is really unpolite. So, if you are on shortage of money, and don't like to give money to rude people, save the money, eat some amazing Dutch fries and take a look at the photos online =).

These cubic houses are very famous and finally I could visit one. Really nice to see it from the inside because it is quite difficult to imagine how to live in such a house. The entire interior needs to be adapted!

3 Euro to look inside the Cube houses. There is lots of wasted space, and the house would be difficult to live in. Needs repairs too. Housing block has faded paint, leaking windows, broken trim, etc. Was a great architectural idea, but not so great for long term living. Biggest attraction now seems to be the youth hostel.

the whole area is nice and crowded with beautiful attractions, the houses are amusing and the idea of living inside one is fun. would recommend to pass under them and take a couple of pictures.

Curious hive- like dwellings formed from a cluster of cubes . Well worth a visit, this is one of many social engineering projects that can be found in the netherlands. Three euros entry.

Do not miss the cubicle houses when in rotterdam! It adds to the whole experience of the old and new city. Even if you are not really interested in architecture, this is something you can not really see anywhere else. It is possible to visit one of the cubicles which makes the impression complete but if you are on a... More

The building itself is quit old, it's good to take pictures around but there was not much to see insides just the structure of one cube house (unless you wanna rent a room and stay). So not suggest to enter, and they did not offer toilet.

Worth a look if you are in the area as its right next to the metro/train station, it was quite cheap about 3 euros. The only problem is its a small space and it gets really busy. Although it's a clever design and good use of space. The owner also has a great display of Lord of the rings figures... More
