The Museumpark is a modern park in the centre of Rotterdam surrounded by six museums. Acclaimed architect Rem Koolhaas together with landscape architect Yves Brunier did largely create the park. De surface area of the Museumpark is 100 by 400 metres.
The Museumpark is divided into five areas. The first area is the rose garden with a pond and a memorial for the prominent city architect Gerrit de Jongh. The second area contains the museums Kunsthal and the Natuurmuseum. The third area is a romantic garden. The fourth area is a raised event terrain on top of a underground car park. The fifth area eventually is a crossing between city and park recognizable by white shells on the ground.
The six museums in and around the park are:
- Het Nieuwe Instituut
- Museumwoning Sonneveld
- Museum Boijmans van Beuningen
- Natuurhistorisch Museum
Note that you can visit these museums for half of the price with the so called Museumparkticket.
The Museumpark is used for several events like theDe Parade in summer.
