Owner description: Kijk-Kubus is a museum-house, a fully decorated cube-house with custom designed & built furniture, which gives you an impression how people can live in such a tilted cube. Models & info-screens give visual & auditive info on: architect Piet Blom / architecture /project-history /surroundings. Open 7 days a week. Admission 2,50 euro p.p. A must for open minded free spirits!

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

A very interesting place to visit while staying at Rotterdam. You have to see how different design affects the space inside the house and ponder on the furniture decisions.

“You must visit - just once.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Good for a one time visit just to confuse your mind a little bit. Very nice to visit and see how you can make the most of angular spaces, but I can't imagine living there.

“Eye-Catching Cube Houses.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

From the outside, you wonder if it will all crash down on you. Amazing architecture. And what people can do with small spaces like that. One of Rotterdam's all time attraction. Unique and Intriguing.

“Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

You only need a short visit, but it was very interesting. The houses are very tiny, and the purchase price they command is quite high, but I guess accommodation would be expensive in Rotterdam. Entry was only 3 euro or so.

“Satisfies the curiosity”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

pretty small and takes about a minute to see,but you pretty much have to go in once you see the cube houses, otherwise you wil always wonder how the hell do people live in those things :O
