- Opening hours
Kunsthal Rotterdam is housed in a striking building designed by Rotterdam’s OMA/Rem Koolhaas architectural practice and was opened in 1992. Since then, the Kunsthal has put culture in the widest sense of the word on show, from elitist to popular.
There are always a number of exhibitions to see, both large and small-scale, from old masters to contemporary art, from innovative design to engaging photography. Guided tours round the main exhibition can be given in Dutch, English, and German for up to 20 people. Architectural tours are also available (on request). Larger groups will be led by more than one guide.
The Kunsthal Café in the building’s basement serves snacks and drinks.
Kunsthal Rotterdam is in Museum Park in the Museumkwartier district. It is a five-minute walk from Leuvehaven metro station and trams 7 and 8 stop nearby. There is an indoor car park at Museum Park.
