Dinersetting in tentoonstelling De Haven

The Port: Reception venue in an open depot setting

Our collection, which covers six centuries of maritime history and which aficionados say is one of the world’s best, has the starring role in ‘The Port’. There are over seventy models of ships, cranes and dredgers for you to admire, as well as over a hundred paintings and photos. These objects give a wonderful picture of how the port of Rotterdam developed.

Your event in among our collection 

At this exhibition, your guests will find themselves right in the middle of the story of Europe’s biggest seaport. Draw inspiration from the milestones in history, such as the first container or the construction of the Nieuwe Waterweg and Waalhaven, which is still the biggest excavated dock in the world. The many model ships, photographs and paintings give an impressive picture of the moments when history was made.
