Curious about the Rotterdam Street Art Museum? Here you can view art by various international artists, who with all their creativity have transformed the streets of Rotterdam into an open-air museum!
The name may suggest that the museum is located in a building, but surprisingly enough, the Street Art Museum is on the streets and is therefore free to visit. Read more about this special part of Rotterdam below.
A while ago, West-Kruiskade and 1e Middellandstraat were the most infamous streets in the city. Fortunately, these streets are no longer as notorious as they used to be, and the drug trafficking and prostitution that used to take place there has disappeared. But this area has never lost its charm.
Because the West-Kruiskade and the 1e Middellandstraat are amazing multicultural spots in Rotterdam, where nationalities, cultures, tastes and smells come together, this was the perfect place to transform into the Street Art Museum. In 2017, at the initiative of the Rotterdam alliance West-Kruiskade and Bureau Binnenstad, West-Kruiskade was renamed the Rotterdam Street Art Museum, with international artists contributing various works of art. This made it the world's first open-air street art museum.
The Rotterdam Street Art Museum is free to visit. Stroll through the area from Kruisplein, along West-Kruiskade to Tiendplein, and discover the works of art that adorn the streets here. See the works of art by, among others, the Amsterdam artist Judith de Leeuw, the Brazilian artist Alex Hornest, and the Rotterdam artist Anne-Mercedes Langhorst.
