It was pretty interesting and a cool thing to see, but for such a small museum (not THAT many things to see) 3 euros is too much. Could've been 1 or 2. You'll be done in 5 minutes.

This house is certainly the most interesting one I've ever entered. It's shape, the way things are organized in order to optmize space, the design of the furniture (since there are no straight walls). Be careful with your head, especially if you're tall. It's easy to hit it on the inclined walls. And oh, the entrance is so cheap! Around... More

It isn't clear to me why this is so fascinating - but it definitely is! The cubic homes are so very cool looking, and I have never seen a home style that looked so amazingly unique. They are just cool to look at, both near and far, in singular and as the group. The design was meant to evoke images... More

We only saw the kijk-kubus from the outside but they were eye catching and interesting. They're located right beside the Markthal so easy to find. Apparently entry is very cheap if you're interested in having a peak inside.

Just opposite the Markthal you will find these Cubic houses in bright yellow . One of them is a museum, entrance fee 3eur. Can be busy.

We have seen these houses from the outside and wondered what it would be like from the inside - and then we realised you can see one house for the fee of 3€. It is a short visit, but it fulfilled our curiosity. Strange houses from the inside also, but worth a visit.

For people who loved to cook this could be a special place to visit inside and later you can find yourself food and drinks.

We were really intrigued by the cube houses and were keen to see in side. Considering that it's just an empty house and that the people running it make no attempt to control numbers in the house (so it's very crowded) or really provide much info it's a lot to pay to walk in, look around and walk back out....
