By public transport, bike or car?
Here’s some tips on how to get to us.

Public transport
Buses 51, 54 and 89, and trams 21 and 24 stop at the Koemarkt stop, a three-minute walk from the museum.

You can take a tram or walk directly from Schiedam Centraal train station, where there are regular trains including the five-minute Intercity from Rotterdam Centraal.

It’s a 20-minute walk from the station to the museum, past the beautiful Sint Janskerk, and the tree on the Grote Markt in which Carice van Houten sat as Poes Minoes in the film of the same name. A small detour will take you along the newly restored Lange Haven, the main artery of the historic centre.

Plan your journey easily with 9292.

Bike
It’s just a 20-minute cycle from Rotterdam Centraal, and there is bicycle parking on the street in front of the museum.

Car
Of course, nothing is too far with a car! There’s paid parking near the museum using a bank card or parking app, but spaces are limited. There are three different car parks a short walking distance from the museum. We recommend the first because the route to the museum takes you past some beautiful spots in the old city centre.
