Ok so the Kubus museum is not really a museum but a show house of what it looks inside, when you know that from the beginning you appreciate it more. There's no extra information. Children 3 and under are free.

Wow! These may be the most unique houses in the world. The show cube is a model cube house available for touring at a nominal cost, although there really isn't that much to see. If you are not tall and not claustrophobic and have an off-kilter appreciation for the offbeat, this may be the home for you. They are not... More

This place looked intriguing on internet sites/photos, but within a few minutes of walking around I began to feel spiritually sick! I experienced a noticeable drop in mood / increase in unease - I can only compare this feeling to that experienced when visiting the Parkhall estate in Sheffield, UK (but that was far less severe). As I was with... More

If you are going to charge people to tour your home, you may want to tidy the place up and hang an air freshener or two. There's not much to see once you are inside, no awesome displays, no great views, just someone's personal claustrophobic dwelling that has some unique details and architecture. The Lord of the Rings figurines are... More

These 38 condos form a bridge of a team line. The design is so unique. How can you use 100 square meters ? 2B 2B Unique. Close walk to the new Markal, a foodies paradise with over 100 venders and places to eat. Opened October 1, so packed with locals and tourists. On Saturdays there is an outdoor market and... More

Definitely not to be missed. The show cube house might not be full of all-singing and all-dancing things to do, but it is really interesting and it is worth the entrance fee just to take a look inside. Don't expect to find fantastic furnishing or breath-taking art, because there isn't any, but do expect to take a few photos inside,... More

One of the main touristic attractions of Rotterdam is the Cubic houses. It is a set of houses designed by Piet Blom and built on the 80's. The interesting thing about these houses is that they are shaped as a cube resting on one of its edges. Nowadays they are particular houses and there is also a youth hostel in... More
