Beautiful place to visit when in Rotterdam. "Nieuwe bouwen" style, brings you back to the thirties! The Sonneveld House Museum reveals the lifestyle of a prominent family of Rotterdammers who were converts to modernism, showing how they furnished their house and which objects they surrounded themselves with.

If you are a lover of 1930's architecture and style this home is the place to be. With a very good audio tour your are allowed to walk around on your own, but even more fun is that you are allowed to open cabinets. And there is furniture available that you are allowed to sit on.

For those interested in architecture, this is a must see. The audio tour is really helpful for understanding the initial owners' vision. I took my time going from room to room, and truly enjoyed my visit. It took me about an hour to visit the entire house at a leisurely pace. I wish they had a biography of the Sonnevelds... More

Really cool modernist home that has been furnished pretty much as the original homeowners did. There's a nice DIY audio tour (free with admission) that provides details of how the family lived in the home.

Really beautiful modern house of the '30's, now a museum. Showing the style of 'Nieuwe Bouwen' and what life was like with the Sonneveld-family. You want to immediately move in and stay as the house is ready to receive you as it's next occupant. The house cooperates with artists now and then who make you see the house with new... More

If you are interested in architecture and design this is a must see. Build in 1933, Sonneveld house is a great example of the modern movement/international style in architecture. The interior design (Gispen) is a perfect match with the architectorial design. One of the few remaining historical examples. Everything is authentic. Very pretty and interesting. Audiotour available. Build on request... More

The amazing thing about the place is knowing it was built in 1933! And has all the luxury of modern day living: heating, toilets, massage showers, bathrooms... Luckily the place did not get destroyed in WW2. The audio guide is also very good. To bad the floor is covered in mirrors, it is a modern art exposition until September. Tickets... More

Well preserved house entry to which includes the Nieuwe Instituut across the road. Interesting but nothing to get the heart beating fast.
