Book your entry ticket to the Wereldmuseum in Rotterdam to experience a world-class collection comprised of more than 83,000 artifacts representing cultures in the past up to the present. Witness over 100 years of collecting by Rotterdammers for Rotterdammers. Experience this magnificent collection and the museum in a new light thanks to being reorganized and remodeled in 2019, ensuring that all the facilities are of the highest standard. Enjoy an experience perfect for the whole family with the newly developed and now fully reopened children’s museum. Along with its thousands of cultural artifacts on display, contemporary fashion, contemporary art, design, and items from popular culture will eventually be added to the collection. Wereldmusuem is located in one of Rotterdam’s most iconic buildings: the majestic building by the Maas River, originally built for the Royal Yacht Club. The members of the club’s board, including scientist and globetrotter Elie van Rijckevorsel, originally used the building to display objects they had collected on their travels. Van Rijckevorsel’s collection largely formed the basis of Wereldmuseum’s collection. Over 50% of Rotterdam’s residents have culturally diverse roots. The traditions and customs they brought with them a century ago have become increasingly integrated into local culture and are an integral part of the wonderfully diverse city that Rotterdam has since become.

For someone visiting Rotterdam for the first time It was a fun way to explore the city. The route took in all the main sights, with the flexibility to decide which ones you wanted to visit in more detail, or to stop for refreshment. Some clues were very challenging (but solvable with hints) others were easy. It took me 6 hours with several breaks for refreshment. For me it missed out the Market Hall (although this should be obvious from the Cube Houses) and Euromast. I continued my walk to visit the latter.

The scavenger hunt aka city tour is nice. The puzzles are doable, even if we needed help once or twice. Is a very nice change from the conventional city tour. In my opinion, but a bit expensive if you are alone.

We had a lot of fun with the tasks. Some tasks are similar, so you could perhaps bring in other ideas, but overall we had seen a lot for the first time in Rotterdam and learned a lot of new things

Sometimes points are missing for the questions that are asked, such as in the Rotterdam city hall, an element is missing. Otherwise a great trip and fun to do

We explored the city in an interactive way . Very nice!
