Its a very unusual architecture and you might think that its a modern construction. In fact it was built in the 1970's which makes it even more special. Its quite easy to imagine how the rooms are inside and no need to visit it inside even though the entrance ticket is only € 3. The first time i visited 7... More

The cube houses are an iconic example of modern architecture in Rotterdam. Only one of the 39 is open to the public, and has been almost since the cubes were built. Unfortunately it is one of the least inspiring ones in the middle of the complex, with a short pole, no terrace and no great view. Internally it also shows... More

very modern architecture, and also a nice, refreshing thing to see in rotterdam. although it doesn't seem very 'liveable', great 'show' for visitors.

These buildings are very unusual & we would have a difficult time living in a house (apartment) of this type of design! It great to look at & interesting to see, however it different. Located at the Blaak metro access point, it worth the visit (no charge)

I couldn't imagine myself living in a cube like this. Interesting architecture but it doesn't seem very liveable. It worth a visit.

We toured the museum cube that let's you see what it's like to live in one. Very interesting both inside and outside. You don't have to pay the 3€ if you just prefer to look at the outside admiring the architecture. I recommend at least doing that, but I enjoyed seeing the inside, too.

I have never seen any residential buildings looking like this! There are some good photo opps on the outside, but even more fun ones inside the museum. Pay the three euro entry ticket to go inside, and you are in for a little surprise: how can something that looks so small on the outside contain so much!? While it's definitely... More

Funny cubeshouses are the most lovely thing we love of this city! Locates next to Marthal and the great train station (we guess)

We tour the exterior of these fascinating cube homes. Very interesting in a city of numerous architectural wonders. A few minutes to absorb and take a few pics.

You have to go see this, entry is only a couple of euros (with 75 cent discount with your Travelcard booklet!) and there truly isn't anywhere like it in the world! What was the architect thinking of? Loved the novelty of it but not sure I could live there - too many steep stairs and you feel a bit like... More
