Especially the current temporary exhibition "Gold of the Gods" is excellent. Excellent level of information about the exhibits (by the free audio guides, books present near the exhibits). A nice touch was the availability of magnifying glasses for a closer look of the fine details and the Indonesian music that was played for the right atmosphere. The other, fixed, exhibition... More

I have been here twice for business lunches and the value considering the quality is exceptional. Where else can you find a Michelin star restaurant with a set menu under 50Euro. The service is sharp and the wine list is good. Come for lunch and save some $$$

Plus some nice if somewhat random exhibits on Indonesia, Papua New Guinea... More

This is a really nice museum, located near the city center, by the river. You can learn a lot about Buddhism and Hinduism merging. The actual exhibition Gold of the Gods makes the visit even more worth it. The pieces you can see here are fantastic.

At the stage of booking I let the restaurant know that shellfish was not an option for my guest. This was remembered when arriving at the restaurant and in a very professional way corrected in the Chefs menu we both ordered without being made over obvious or lowering the quality of the menu for my guest. This was very important... More

This Museum is famous for it's exhibitions of Asian Cultures. For instance now (untill the 28th of June) there is a special exhibition about "Gold of the Gods of ancient Java" (Indonesia). When you visit Rotterdam this museum is a must be.
