Belasting & Douane Museum

An interactive museum

Want to discover a different kind of museum? Allow us to introduce you to the Belasting & Douane Museum. This museum offers a thematic and interactive tour through the history of taxes and customs and is suitable for all ages.

Discover how duties were measured, weighed and calculated in the past and experience which facilities are paid for with tax revenue. Don’t forget to take a look at the objects used for smuggling, from shoes with double bottoms to the rib of a whale.

Β And especially for youngsters there is a space where they can scan suitcases and step into a customs boat to navigate through the harbour of Rotterdam. During the holidays there are workshops and a lot of activities. Check out the website and agenda for upcoming exhibitions and activities.

Parklaan 14-16, 3016 BB
