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

This is really a cheap visit to make in Rotterdam. Really worth it, even if you're not into design or architecture. Make sure you walk through the base, and take a look from every possible angle you can. Of course, you must enter the museum house, to experience it from the inside (I think fee is only 2€).

Totally unique concept for housing. Wonderful way to create a living area in the city. The museum is a fully laid out home.

A very interesting place, I did not think that a place so small can be utilised so well. Only €3 to get in the museum and have a look around although the steps are quite steep so my little girl refused to go up.

If you can, just go and have a look! :) From the outside it's very nice and interesting, but you'll be very surprised if you'll go inside the museum house (it's 3pounds pp), 'cause it's bigger than you can imagine!

These are cubes houses, very impressive from outside and very interesting inside. You can visit one of the houses and understand how the space inside can be optimize. It is really interesting and another way of thinking the living space. In addition, being the city on average very new, these building are really in line with the style!

Definitely worth a visit. These houses are exactly the kind of architecture I would like to see more often in a modern city: experiencing them gives a very warm feeling, and the setup does a lot to encourage human interaction. There are 39 houses together with an interior courtyard, which also gives a nice view of the nearby Het Potlood... More

This was certainly interesting, outside was certainly impressive. Built in early 80s I imagine it was very modern at the time. But it has lost some of the sparkle. €3 is acceptable for the 10min you will spend there.
