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.

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)

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

A very small museum with prices of €3 for adults and €1.50 for children. Very steep stairs and ordinary interior. It is located at the busy street of Blaak, and behind it you can see The Witte Huis (The White House). Very special and cool.

We knew Rotterdam was full of interesting modern architectural buildings which is one of the reasons we came to visit Rotterdam. The Kijk-Kubus was one that we wanted to view but only from the outside. The wooden cubes were built in the 1970s as a solution to putting houses on top of a pedestrian bridge and to add a bit...

A real small museum with a very uninterested person at the entrance rushing people in and out. You walk through all the rooms so you can see how they fit in all rooms you will find in a normal house. But the interior is unimaginative and with no information about how it really is to live in this kind of... More

These unique buildings are very cool but I never want to live here. The yellow cube houses are only part of Rotterdam.

A fun visit in order to know how people staying at such straight sharp of house. The first floor is the counter for entrance fee. Including a sitting room and kitchen. 2nd floor is working room, bedroom and toilet, and the top floor is the sitting room which is quite comfortable. I think it is worthy to visit!

The cube house museum (show-cube) is an owner lived in property which he shows as a museum during the day. The tickets are pretty cheap 4 Euro or so per person, but he doesn't put that money back into the attraction. It's not very clean inside and looks a bit like a bachelor pad gone cube. The furniture is broken... More
