Museum

Design and innovation – in the fields of architecture, design and e-culture – are at the heart of the activities of the Nieuwe Instituut. Three multiyear programmes - Landscape and Interior, Things, and Materials – and a programme with a theme that changes annually (2015: World’s Fairs) are the starting point for everything the institute does. The Nieuwe Instituut organises events, including exhibitions, research, lectures and publications around these programmes.

The presentation, Surprising Finds from the Collection, can also be viewed. Its exhibits are regularly changed and include extraordinary drawings, photographs, objects and models which illustrate the history of Dutch architecture. 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.
