Great indoor and outdoor playground for kids
Dec 2020 • Family
We only visited the 2nd floor which is the part if the exhibition dedicated to younger kids. It sure was a success, especially the interactive, martime themed playgrounds (indoor and outdoor).

Great for kids
Aug 2020 • Family
A nice museum with a great interactive area for kids (Professor Splash) where they can role play at running a port, including operating a crane and scanning cargo and moving it to a ship. Good cafe too plus outdoor area where you can view boats in the harbour.

Didn't float our boats
Oct 2019
Maybe our expectations were a bit high, having been to the Maritime Museum in Amsterdam. While the museum has a lot of boats outside the museum, we felt there was not a lot of explanation or context for these (or several of the other outdoor exhibitions). There was also confusion regarding the opening times of the boats, as they did not seem to open at the same time as the main museum. Inside the museum the level of information was better and the exhibitions on drug trafficking and submarine flags were particular highlights. We did the Offshore Experience, which was highly interactive and we would recommend for children. The Sea Monsters section would also have been suitable for children. We're pleased we went, but we don't think we'll be back.

Great museum to visit, but lacking in variety of activities
Jul 2020
This was a great museum to visit!

My family & I especially liked the Offshore Experience. Do not be disturbed by its 8+ rating though - as long as you don't have a stroller to push, it is perfectly OK for children 4+ to visit. It was very informative and filled with many interactive games (simulators) that each visitor can try.

Apart from that, there weren't many other activities to participate. The museum has a display of its maritime collection that are informative. A Sea Monsters exhibit was also available during my time of visit, but nothing too special - the usual displays, information and videos. There's also an exhibit about the Illegal Drugs Trade, but due to their 14+ nature, it would not be suitable for my family.

The outdoor Maritime Museum Harbor was an interesting visit, although it could be quite boring for kids as you will be visiting old ships and learning about their interiors and the people that lived in them.

First visit to Rotterdam
Feb 2020
Diverted to Rotterdam on a storm hit Cruise so took opportunity to visit the Maritime Museum

Great value at €14 each which included all the usual museum type things but also a very interesting Oil Rig Offshore experience which was clever and great fun

Would recommend

Superb maritime museum
Jan 2020
My husband and I so enjoyed this museum. It was well laid out and beautifully staged. The exhibits were described in Dutch and English and were extensive. They had a marvelous floor for children and their adults which we also enjoyed.

Explore the world of the drug trade.
Sep 2019
Rotterdam's Maritime Museum has both permanent and temporary exhibitions, some of which are geared towards kids. The exhibitions cover a range of subject matter related to shipping, including a large number of model ships. One of the more interesting exhibitions, was an interactive one called "Dealing With Drugs". It puts you into the world of the illegal drug trade.

While I didn't dislike this museum, it wasn't a must see attraction in Rotterdam for me. I was far more impressed with the Maritime museum in Amsterdam.

Maritime history revealed

This museum reflects Rotterdam’s association with the sea. There is much to do for children and adults alike, with hands on activities. There are also some extremely old artefacts which are particularly inspiring and there is much to explore and reflect upon. Well worth the time to visit.
