The ticket line was filled with families & lots of kids. Therefore, we decided to save the museum for another day. However, the substantial outdoor exhibit of a variety of boats was fun to explore at no charge.

Interesting collection of historical maritime vessels and gear. Static displays. Average. Nothing special for an old sailor, but perhaps of more interest to those who have not been to sea nor lived in sea coastal areas.

Nothing oustanding, unless you are kid, for they have splendid interactive displays for the youngsters. The most noteworthy part is the outdoor display of actual ships and boats moored alongside. But access to this part from the street past the museum is free of charge, and you don't have the pay the museum's 7,5 euros ticket to see that part.

Great indoor and outdoor museum. It shows where Rotterdam is proud of: its history of ships around the world and Rotterdam's own harbor. Do take a sail on on of the old steamers on a Sunday afternoon !!

I wandered around the outside display by chance around twilight, the place still retains a feel of a very important port city, steeped in history. A lovely place to spend a few moments...

Our family spent about 2.5 hours at the museum. It is great and very interactive for kids. The staff was quite helpful. Good family experience, thanks!

I went by chance,to get out of the rain and I found a beatiful, well presented museum. A great collection of models, well documented in 2 languages, very friendly staff, and the biggest painting of naval scenes ever seen. It is well Worth a visit, an hour or 2, and close to other attraction like the cube houses and the... More

My husband builds wooden ship models and so we generally visit maritime museums when we find them. This is a very large museum, and the displays are good, but...... if it is ancient maritime history that you are interested in, this will probably be a disappointment. For a country that had such an important maritime influence and history, virtually nothing... More

Was expecting much considering that Rotterdam is the best and largest port in Europe. Too much focus was placed on historical vessels and old maritime history. Sections detailing the growth and evolution of the maritime industry should be made clearer. There is very little info on relatively modern merchant, container or merchant shipping - which is ironic given that Rotterdam... More
