Really nice exhibits, even if you are not an architect. Also has a nice cafe and you can enter for free with a Rotterdampas.

This was well worth the money (10e). The permanent exhibitions were interactive and it kept us focused all the time. Good time!

Artur Marin Sabates 1 year ago

The place is fantastic and it is worth passing through if only to see the building. The permanent exhibition gives a comprehensive and entertaining overview of the history of architecture in the Netherlands. The ticket entitles you to visit the magnificent Sonneveld House.

AMAZING Solar exhibition...with loads of serious history & ideas & inspiration to double down on our efforts...to save the flippin planet & our actual survival as human race... i left my contribution on A4 sheet as i got my energy consumption down *to* one third last winter ie *by* two thirds with i) pelmets 15-25% (hats over curtains) ii) shelf over rad & curtains iii) fleece lined my oma's curtain (giving them another 40 years of life) iv) aluminium foil (thick not kitchen) behind radiators (so it doesnt disappear into the wall & cosy as anything with "heat the person not the home" & my microwave hotties i) Wheaty bags & ii) All nighters. [BEWARE: Digital microwaves with 99mins are dangerous] oh & 7 layers of clothing designed to fit together with comfort incl gloves & socks. Last tip: feet get wet (hands dont) so if yr feet are cold CHANGE socks...then get them warm!

One of the best museums in the Netherlands and a must for lovers of design, architecture and the avant-garde. The programming is of rare relevance and always offers questions and points of view both on what our current society is and on what it could become. The building is superb, the exhibitions, both in terms of their content and their staging, are excellent and always very well explained, although experimental, and easy to access for a wide audience, if you take the time to read a little. I go back as soon as a new exhibition opens. A visit to conclude with the marvelous bookstore – offering a sharp selection of books and essays on architecture, town planning, landscaping, design, etc. – and the café, with a view of the water.

I know....that pink stage and that huge pink staircase have only been around for a few months, but they are here! Very striking, very attractive, and certainly also very safe! Accessible for a small amount (€3.00 with many free options), even without visiting the museum. I am well acquainted with the museum, and for me, with constantly changing exhibitions, it is always attractive. Today I am here to enjoy the view in this special way, especially the view of the new spectacular Depot of Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, the shiny nearest neighbour. In recent years I have also done this at the Grote Kerk in Alkmaar, the Groothandelsgebouw, and this summer also the St. Janskerk in Gouda. It must have taken a lot of thought (and money....) to make this plateau, this staircase, and this special construction lift (also available for wheelchairs). When you are almost at the top you have a very nice view of everything that is on that large flat roof of machinery, pipes and you name it! Then you also see how much effort has gone into making such a plateau above that. So just enjoy, and I, I look at those high stairs, and take the elevator - at least up! Well done, Nieuwe Instituut and MVRDV!

We ate here and sat on the sunny terrace by the water for an hour. Didn't visit the institute itself. The food was delicious and all vegetarian. Tasty and very surprising. Definitely recommended.

Go with time, patience and an open mind and you will leave with more questions than when you arrived, which I think is a good thing, as this is not a museum.

When I visited the house in Sonefeld, I was able to see it together. The exhibits in the basement gave me a great experience, and the exhibits upstairs were fun. The bookstore on the first floor was also good because there were many books about architecture

very nice building and very nice exhibition spaces, located in a pleasant area. Entrance price a bit expensive as usual in museums in the Netherlands.

Ivenne Mecking 5 years ago

Even better than expected. The exhibits (including when we were there: Dissident Gardens) were all beautifully arranged and everything is nice and spacious. Nice to have a look at the existing bookshop afterwards; many beautiful books! Combination with house Sonneveld is recommended. Parking nearby and indoor catering, so fully equipped.

Very innovative exhibition space, I especially enjoyed the Steve Bannon: a propaganda retro-spective. That put me in mind of another evil propagandist herman goebbels.

In between museum! Makes you think.

Bomi Kim 7 years ago

Their exhibitions are experimental, bold, creative, expansive and with many profound meanings. I couldn't agree more to the use of the word "Institute" instead of "Museum". I'd be so proud of this place if I had been living in Rotterdam.
