I am not a museum kind of guy but this exhibition about the spy of the centuries is really worth full to see. It is a spacious setup to get an idea of the author, actors and a look behind the scenes of making James Bond movies. Nice exposure of the gadgets and beautiful clothing's of the actors. We were...

Who for? Want to find out what's happening, how we're all gonna drown or what. That great Kunsthal offers a good 18 hours read in all five halls. Urban by Nature. Went outside, enjoyed the park.

I was really disappointed after visiting Kunsthal. Compared to every art museum I have visited in Netherlands, this was really poor. They had exhibition on shoes, which in my opinion has nothing to do with art. Mostly there were women looking at pretty shoes, nothing special or artistic about that. The Marimekko exhibition on the other hand was a bit... More

They had a great exhibition on Marimekko when I went which was so colourful and bright and fantastic. Otherwise I went there to see the architecture which is a must if you're interested in this field. The portrait of Rem Koolhaas (in a Chairman Mao-style) in the ramp corridor gave me a chuckle.

I enjoyed my visit but it will depend your interest in the eclectiic mix of exhbitions. Currently has an exhibition of shoes, a Finnish textile designer, an early dutch artist/explore and what could have been for me a very intersting exhibition on Holland during the second world war. Unforutnately the latter exhibition did not have any information in English so... More

Since there was a large exhibition on shoes at this museum, it had to be one of our stops on a recent trip. Hundreds of shoes, quaint, arty, different, insane, ad infitium were on display. Those attending were mostly female tugging along a few of us older guys. Of course, the museum was smart to have, at the same time,... More

This museum has a fantastic collection of monuments and artifacts. The time spent here is valuable and I still cherish my moments at this place. Me and my friends were on a tour to Rotterdam and heard about this place quite often. So we thought of visiting this place with lots of hope and to our surprise this place was... More

I have always enjoyed the collections at this museum. They do not have a fixed collection, but switch every 6 months (or longer periods) to new art shows. They always surprise me!
