Museum Rotterdam reviews

It's a nice museum, I expected more information on the 40-45 period but you get a nice overview of the city's history. The employees are also very nice.
Small but interesting museum. They have temporary expositions which always focus on the city of Rotterdam. It's fun for kids as well, they usually have a corner focussed on something kids can do, build or interact with. My 4 year old daughter really enjoyed it last time we visited.
