The Natural History Museum is a must-see Rotterdam museum that never ceases to amaze.

Its permanent collection of birds, mammals, fish, insects, shells and plants shows the earth’s biodiversity in all its splendour. All the fossils found in Dutch soil can be seen in the ‘Opgeraapt Opgevist Uitgehakt’ exhibition. The exhibition ‘Pure Resilience’ shows that the city is nature too. Eye-catchers are the skeleton of a sperm whale and the skeleton of the elephant Ramon.

The museum also attracts international attention and visitors with its famous dead-animals-with-a-story such as the Domino sparrow, the House of Representatives mouse and the CERN marten.

The museum offers various changing exhibitions, activities, educational programmes, guided tours and treasure hunts. It also hosts children’s parties.
