Excellent presentation of the collection: the building itself, the installations are top quality; the permanent collection itself is very nice indeed with an emphasis on Oriental art.

“Great museum on a wonderful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

This is a great museum on one of the most beautiful spots of this great city. The main exposition is free of charge, which is a treat. You shouldn't miss it when you are visiting Rotterdam.
