This is a compact museum with affecting displays. Got there 25 minutes before closing -- no worries ! The lead docent, Johannes, personally gave me a terrific experience of all the floors. Great uniforms, weapons ,history, etc.
The hallmark of the tour was a 35 " model of a 18th century Dutch, 3 masted sailing ship -- better than any example in the city's vaunted Maritime Museum . It was a marvel of craftsmanship and detail -- great for kids of ALL ages. I offered " top dollar " to buy it !! No luck.

I love the location, the historical value of the site, it's small museum but full of informative facts. The films are great and the one on the second floor alone is worth the price of admission!

I went for both a family trip and for research into the battle for Rotterdam in 1940. The staff was very helpful in accessing the Witte Huis, (the museum is adjacent) which formed a key bastion during battle from May 10-14. Then the tallest building in Rotterdam, it provided the Dutch garrison with excellent fields of fire along the (old) Willems bridge and adjacent rail bridge (the new Willems bridge 150 m upstream was opened in 1981, all that remains of the old bridge is the bridgehead). A national monument, the Witte Huis has limited public viewing (for example during Rotterdam Architectuur Maand). However, check ahead with the Mariniers Museum and they can get you access on weekends (depending on weather of course). Amazing views of the Nieuwe Maas river and the city from the top of the building. The museum itself covers the history of the Dutch marine corps from its creation in 1665 up to the present day.

No guides, hard to understand information without proper labeling for captions so it’s guess work to find out what you’re even looking at. Far too small for its price, as well as quite boring and uninteresting exhibits. The information told to you is closer to that of a Wikipedia article listing the obvious and not some greater, more compelling narrative that not just “isn’t Rotterdam great?” Serving closer to a tourism ad for the city that you pay to enter. I am heavily disappointed, especially after Rotterdammers have hyped up the museum as their pride and joy:but that’s what it is; a thing that’s exists so you can have something to feel prideful about with any actual care of what it is.

Really nice museum, very interactive, suitable for children. The building that houses the museum is very beautiful seen from the outside, less seen from the inside. One visit is enough.

Very friendly staff. The children receive a sheet with questions to solve. At the end you can open a chest with the code. You can also perform a small mission where you must rescue a crashed pilot. You get an army uniform, compas and more.

The building had 3 floors, but there's an elevator so it's also suitable for people with walking difficulties.

We enjoyed the museum a lot. It is very much geared up for kids though, ages 8 and up. As an adult I found it interesting, but a bit limited in information. It is a very interactive place, with activities mostly for the young. We really enjoyed it, though, the 11 year old boys I took absolutely loved it. It is very centrally located and you can easily combine it with a visit to the Markthal for example. Blaak station is around the corner. We found the museum staff to be very friendly in this small museum.

Though this famous regiment is one of the finest in the world, their museum is not worth a detour. Part of the exposition was closed during my visit (which was was not announced on the museum website: welcome to the 21st century musemstaff). Not really worth visiting and an amateurish display which does not do any justice to the proud history of the 'Mariniers'.

This is an interesting little museum and also suitable for kids aged 10 and older. As an adult I found the exhibition somewhat small but informative and interesting.

The 10 of mai in 1940 the Nazis came with a floating planes to Rotterdam. It was early in the morning but the few people who were on there way were asthonished. They never saw a planes landing on water. There were even people who helped the Germans soldiers on land. But a policeofficer felt danger and he shot but missed. He was the first to die that day. Come and hear and see the rest of the story in this museum. Or book a tour to hear the story from soldiers.
