FutureLand, the Port of Rotterdam Authority’s information centre on Maasvlakte is a great place to visit during the Spring break.
As well as the regular programmes, which include sightseeing coach tours and cruises around Europe’s biggest port, there are lots more things to do. Young visitors can take part in the kidsquiz or a craft workshop. Teenagers and adults can come and see the temporary exhibition about the digital port or follow an audio tour through the information centre.
Children can get creative during fun craft workshops. Participation in the workshop, under the supervision of art teacher Joanna Smolarz, is free. On Friday, May 6 between 1 PM and 4 PM, children will be working with LEGO during a free workshop. The inspiring constructions from LEGO of Wilfred Meijerink are exhibited and are an inspiration.
Experienced fossil tracker Walter Langendoen leads expeditions during the May holiday on Wednesday, May 4. He teaches participants what to look for when searching for archaeological and palaeontological treasures. He also tells them what has been found. The sand excavated from deep layers of the North Sea floor contains fossilised hyena keys and mammoth bones.
There is the possibility to go treasure hunting at the dunes and beach surrounding Futureland. Participants you can learn all about the wildlife and businesses in the area. The treasure hunt starts at the Maasvlakte Beach’s P3 car park on Maasvlakteboulevard.
