After reading so many bad reviews we were just going to check this phenomen only from outside but seeing a big group entering the "Kijk-Kubus" we decided to visit it too. Yes, entrance fee is 3€ and IT'S DEFINITELY WORTH IT if you are a curious person! :)

These were the only item on my Rotterdam to do list. We walked up and around the houses. Kids loved them we didn't bother going inside the house and from the look of them I am not sure our party of 10 would have fitted!! We had a pushchair with us and I have mobility problems but there is a... More

We visited the cubes because we just had to know how someone can live in such a small space. It was certainly worth the visit, especially since it was only 3 euros per person and the view from the top floor (yes there are three floors/levels in each cube) was beautiful. However the space is not wheelchair accessible and the... More

nothing interesting, poor interior, totally not worth €3.. it's better to go inside the "stay okey" hostel situated in the neighborhood to look at the cubes from inside.

It is a nice attraction and a must when you visit Rotterdam. This is an architectural gemstone from Rotterdam. The outside looks weird and the inside is very special to experience! It is more a show house then a museum but quite interesting and nice to see! And it is quite in the centre of the city!

Another typical sample of Rotterdam architecture! The outside is so weird that you cannot imagine what the inside might look like! Therefore, I chose to enter the so called museum, which is one of those houses with the basic decoration, open to the public. I found it very interesting, however I found the charge of 3 € (without receipt!!) too... More

Like most reviewers have said, you don't need to spend much time inside the actual cube, but if you're already there, it's worth paying the 3 euro to check out how the inside/living space is structured. Plus, you get views of the adjacent cube structures from eye-level. I certainly recommend visiting both inside and outside; better than wondering what the... More

This apartment complex is worth visiting for the quirkiness of the architecture. All the units are cubic but stand on a pointy corner of the cube. It begs you to see how it is possible to live inside the upended structure and this is possible because one unit is an attraction and can be visited. It does get crowded inside... More

We visited and they are fun to see, but the charge to visit of €3 seems rather excessive. takes you back to the eighties as there has not been any decoration since then
