Het Nieuwe Instituut

Architecture, City Tours, Museum

In Het Nieuwe Instituut, the Museum of Architecture, Design and Digital Culture shows temporary exhibitions with a recurring theme of innovation. In other words: the museum examines the designed world and how it is constantly being changed by new technologies, new ideas and shifting social priorities. The presentation, Surprising Finds from the Collection, can also be viewed. Its exhibits are regularly changed and include extraordinary drawings, photographs, objects and models from the extensive archives of Het Nieuwe Instituut.

Close to the institution is Huis Sonneveld, one of the best preserved residential homes built in the Dutch functionalist Het Nieuwe Bouwen style.
The Nieuwe Instituut charges a reduced rate for groups of over 15 people. Guided tours for groups in Dutch or English are available and led by guides from ArchiGuides.

The Nieuwe Instituut is on the Museumpark road in the Museumkwartier district and is easy to get to by metro and by tram 7 and tram 20 (the Eendrachtsplein stop). It is about a 15-minute walk from Rotterdam Central Station. The Museumpark parking garage is opposite the building.

Vanaf 2017 is Het Nieuwe Instituut op donderdag tot 21 uur geopend!
