“Amazing house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Sonneveld house is part of the NAI and it's a beautifull old house, filled with dutch design classics. The Sonneveld house alone is worth this entry price for the complete NAI. Two museums for the price of one. Great deal.

“Audio tour is very well done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Very detailed audio tour holds lots of interest for those who like interior design and architecture. Incredible to be included in the price of the NAI museum as would have been worth the ticket price just for this.

“Absolutely beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

If you love modernist architecture, this is the place to visit in Rotterdam. The staff are very friendly and can explain anything you would like to ask about the layout and function of the rooms.
The house looking so modern to our eyes, it still had rooms for servants which is not the norm in our days. This is the most complete and authentic modernist house I've even visited and I would recommend it to all visitors.

“A house from the 30's that still looks modern today!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Wow! The architect and the owner that commissioned this house were truly ahead of their time. The style from the exterior to the interior must've seemed curious back in the 30's. Today, it looks just like any modern city home with stylish art deco-like furniture inside but when you realize that it was made way before the 2nd world war, it hits you how visionary these people were. So glad that it survived the attack on Rotterdam in WWII. The tour of the house comes free with the ticket of the NAI museum nearby.
