This is a wonderful museum in a beautiful building next to the Rotterdam port and the Erasmus Bridge. A diverse collection of exhibits over several floors with a cute gift shop and a VERY good café. The Caesar salads there are perfect - I walked there several times just for lunch!! A must see if you are in the area around the port.

The museum has a large Buddhist collection, mostly from Tibet and Japan, although there are smaller collections from Vietnam, China, India and Indonesia present as well. As mentioned in the title, the display is sometimes poor, such that one can hardly see the object due to reflections. On the other hand, the temples that have been reconstructed are well done. The museum houses also a smaller, but good collection of objects from the smaller islands in Oceania and a very few artefacts from Peru.
The temporary exhibition when I visited was poor, but that is obviously variable. The museum is rather expensive.

Walk from room to room and meet different cultures and aspects of life in them. Very tall and slim wooden figures are really something else.

Fantastic collections of artifacts from Asia, Africa, Peru and other countries, nicely arranged and easy to follow. The museum is not very large, but lovely and enjoyable.
Check out the ballroom on the first level. Welcoming and friendly staff happy to assist and provide more information.

Admission is free with Museumkaart.
