Designed to resemble an "urban forest" in which the top of each house represents a tree, Kijk-Kubus serves today as the display piece for one of Holland's most unorthodox buildings. The brainchild of architect Piet Blom, the housing unit was constructed in 1977 and has since become a recognizable landmark of modern Rotterdam. Visit the museum house and wander through the living quarters, spread out across three stories and complete with angled windows and oddly-shaped floor plans. Despite the unusual visual appearance within, the cube has many ordinary furnishings intended to demonstrate that life within could still be perfectly normal. You can easily access the houses by subway, as they sit above the Blaak station.

  • Nice architecture, the museum is tiny and not suitable for more than 5 or 6 people at a time. But interesting to see the flats inside

  • Great learning experience, beautiful views of the city, a wonderful time when you are discovering a new city with the family. A wonderful concept to explore new ways to use small places as homes! Clean, very nice and the host is so nice that she offered to take our pictures when she noticed that we were having difficulties to take the pictures. It was awesome and we enjoyed a beautiful time there.
  • undoubtedly one of the most unique housing developments you will ever see, in the Netherlands and in the world. it’s free to wander around at your leisure, €3 to enter one of the houses and take a little tour. well worth the small price. gives you a fascinating look into how exactly you’d live in one of these houses. also ends up making a very nice pedestrian bridge over one of the busiest roads in rotterdam and you can watch the traffic go by. pretty cool at night
