Destination Port City

Discover the past, present and future of Rotterdam in the new exhibition 'Destination Port City'. Get on a virtual subway and travel from dam to world port. You will find out how the port of Rotterdam grew into the largest in Europe.

From dam to world port

Rotterdammers take you along in their stories about various places in the city, which are unmistakably shaped by the influence of the port. This exhibition is a journey through time, showing that city and port influence each other and are inextricably linked.

Step into the story of the damming of the Rotte and travel via the center to South Rotterdam, via the port area to the future. You will come across beautiful pieces from our collection and hear stories about turbulent developments.
