The Maritime Museum’s depot is a true treasure trove. In a century and a half thousands of models, paintings, prints, photos and utensils have been given a place there. In many cases they have a link with the port of Rotterdam. Together, all these museum pieces tell the story of the city of Rotterdam. Part of it has been published in book form on the occasion of our exhibition ‘De Haven‘.
For this book we turned our treasury upside down to show some of the treasures from the depot in a unique way. Read the stories they tell, but above all: watch and enjoy!
