Owner description: Kijk-Kubus is a museum-house, a fully decorated cube-house with custom designed & built furniture, which gives you an impression how people can live in such a tilted cube. Models & info-screens give visual & auditive info on: architect Piet Blom / architecture /project-history /surroundings. Open 7 days a week. Admission 2,50 euro p.p. A must for open minded free spirits!

Definitely worth a visit. These houses are exactly the kind of architecture I would like to see more often in a modern city: experiencing them gives a very warm feeling, and the setup does a lot to encourage human interaction. There are 39 houses together with an interior courtyard, which also gives a nice view of the nearby Het Potlood building. Only one cube can be visited (the other are functioning apartments), but its interior is pretty impressive. There's more space than you would think, and the shape of the room makes for some really awesome window placements. It would be a lot of fun to contemplate a storm from the top floor.

Bottom line, I highly recommend spending 3 Euros (2 for students) to go inside. But even if you're really poor or cheap, there's a lot to see from the outside!

This was certainly interesting, outside was certainly impressive. Built in early 80s I imagine it was very modern at the time. But it has lost some of the sparkle. €3 is acceptable for the 10min you will spend there.

This is a complete must see when visiting Rotterdam, especially if you have even the slightest interest in modern architecture.
3 Euros get you into one of the flats and once there, you are free to wonder and can spend as long in there as you want- 30 minutes does the trick, I would say.
The flats are like nothing you can imagine and due to its unusual inside shape, pictures can't completely describe the feel of the inside of it.

The cube houses are easy to get to and straight outside the Blaak Subway Station.

This is really a must-see in Rotterdam! It is interesting both for adults and for children. The architecture is amazing) you would not regret visiting it. The price is 3 euros for adults and 1,5 for children

These buildings are a very interesting design which captures your imagination as to what they look like on the inside. Worth a visit
