The collection of the Havenmuseum clearly shows the port of Rotterdam between 1850 and 1970. Fully refitted historic transport ships, steam engines and ship motors bring bygone days to life.
Over the years, the port’s activities have been moved to locations such as Botlek, Europoort and Maasvlakte, yet these new ports are now virtually inaccessible for visitors. The museum provides insight into what life at the port used to be like and visitors can take a round trip on the water bus, former port ferry or steam towboat.
