The main location of Museum Rotterdam, in the Timmerhuis, is the museum of the city. It is located right in the center, where the ultramodern glass and steel of the world-famous architectural firm OMA come together with the concrete and brick of the Timmerhuis reconstruction monument. Here historical pieces and new heritage tell the story of Rotterdam and the people of Rotterdam in unexpected combinations – from settlement on the Rotte to multicolored metropolis. Sea containers full of heritage take the visitor in History of the city along the rich past of Rotterdam; from settlement on the Rotte to devastation after the bombing to modern architecture city.
