See, discover and believe
Rotterdam has plenty of places that will delight your kids. Like the zoo, Diergaarde Blijdorp, where you can admire the smallest and largest animals. There is also plenty to discover there by doing water experiments in the Oceanium and looking at shrimps and larvae through a microscope. It’s a great location on a rainy day too. Blijdorp has many indoor areas, including a playground, the Biotopia. Speaking of playgrounds, the big play tower in the Oewanja Children’s Jungle is awesome. The playground also has a section especially for toddlers and pre-schoolers.
Miniworld is slightly more compact. The coolest and most beautiful places can be seen here in minute detail. Have a look at the impressive port, the most beautiful and oldest buildings in Rotterdam or see what the city of Rotterdam looks like at night. Miniworld is fun for an hour or two while you can easily wander around Blijdorp for two days.
Villa Zebra is a children’s museum of visual art, where the little ones playfully come into contact with contemporary art. The five play-and-art installations of ZELF! are developed in collaboration with artists for children from 3 to 6 years. Older children can visit the De Moestuin (vegetable garden) exhibition. An investigation into how we could behave in the future.
