In the Maritime Museum Rotterdam, you can discover the enormous effect that shipping has on our daily lives. Go on a journey with us through the maritime past and present in modern exhibitions for adventurers large and small. Listen to the stories, admire the prize exhibits from our leading collection or join in some of the numerous activities. The museum is in one of the oldest and largest museum harbours of the Netherlands, where you can visit historic vessels and cranes and experience how the world's leading port of Rotterdam began at this spot.
The maritime sector is deeply rooted in the Dutch culture and economy. The innovative and entrepreneurial strength of this sector of the Dutch economy is something that we want to be able to feel in the museum. We are using our knowledge and our collection to translate stories from maritime practice into attractive and modern presentations for a largely non-maritime audience. We are therefore always looking for new partners with stories from the maritime sector.The Maritime Museum thanks its partners for their financial contribution. Partly due to the financial support, dedication and commitment of these partners, the continued existence of the museum is guaranteed and we can realize our ambitions.
