Ultimately, the show cube doesn’t really do justice to Blom’s design. It’s cheap, you see how furniture fits in, but you don’t get the sense of how you live there with all your belongings. There is no information available inside. But it’s only €3 to...More

Super cool small museum in the middle of the cube houses. I truly enjoyed my visit, never seen anything similar before! Totally worth to pop by

Absolutely a "must to see " place in Rotterdam. Exterior view is very good and interesting. If you pay 3 Euro and enter one of these cubes you will have a big dissapointment. Only 2 rooms with small windows.

After reading about theses houses the museum is a must at €3. You have to go in to really appreciate the design and see how you live in a cube.

The cube houses are an obvious site to visit, and it was pleasing to get inside one, and okay for 3 Euro. Right from the start, the guy only responded to money then ignored questions, instead focusing on ordering people up and down the stairs....More

Show house amidst the famous cube houses. 3 euro entrance. Takes about 15 minutes to see it all. Very cool to see how the houses "work" in practicality. Not too busy, didn't need to queue.
