Natural History Museum Rotterdam


A cute museum

The permanent collection of birds, mammals, fish, insects, shells and plants shows earth’s biodiversity in all its diversity. You can see all the fossils that can be found in Dutch soil in the exhibition ‘Retrieved, Fished Out’. The exhibition ‘Pure Resilience’ shows that the city is also nature. Eye-catchers are the skeleton of a sperm whale and the skeleton of elephant Ramon.

With famous dead animals with a story such as the Dominomus, the House of Representatives mouse and the CERN marten, the museum also attracts international attention and audiences.

The museum offers various changing exhibitions, activities, educational programs, guided tours, treasure hunts and the possibility of children’s parties.
