So good! Pretty interesting and even exciting. Can’t believe that you get all the informations for free. If you are in Rotterdam, you should visit it definitely! You get informations about the History, the Technic, and even about further developments.nI can recommend totally!!!

Well designed tour, you have to check for yourself, lots of information! Decided to take the boat due to Netherlands obvious reasons 😅 to be inside the water, the audio tour on your own mobile is really nice, don't forget your earphones! Plenty of parking spots and a comfortable place to have a lunch.

We visited the FutureLand on a rainy Sunday for the FutureExpress Bustour through Maasvlakte2.nWe came from Rotterdam by Metro and the Hoeksveer ferry, unfortunately the bus tours and the ferry times are not well aligned since to different companies. On Sundays the ferry is the only public transport. Since the last ferry was on 4pm due to weather we did not come back and needed additional transport to Oostvorne and from there by bus and metro back to Rotterdam city.n- in short I’d recommend to come by car !

Very interesting place to understand how Rotterdam's harbour expanded through years (even centuries) and to have a sneak peek about how it is organized. There you have a close view on the logistic area around too. Furthermore, the FutureLand area provides truly relevant information about Rotterdam's harbour expansion and the Maasvlakte 2 project, meant to be operational in 2035.

Coffee, pastries and cake :) The exhibit is free and has cycle paths around the island. The ferry has a small charge paid on boarding.

The largest port in Europe, an impressive cruise ship, worth seeing. If you go with public transport it is problem to go there from Rotterdam, definitely on sunday, there is no direct connection. In the end we used a day trip with Speedo company - from Rotterdam to Futureland by bus, then an hour's cruise around the port, and back again by bus.

We went on the boat tour of 1&2. The guide spoke in Dutch over the onboard speakers non-stop for the entire tour. The volume was so loud that we werenu2019t able to hear the English audio tour we accessed on our phone. No headphones were offered to listen to the audio tour. The route was nice and we saw lots of ships. Iu2019m sure the tour would have been great if we spoke Dutch.

During COVID-19 it has lost a bit of its purpose. A lot of stuff is either closed or not functional. Sad to see. Hopefully it will all be better when restrictions are lifted.

Very friendly people. My dad forgot his phone in their bus and they sent it across Europe for free!

Interesting view of how new land is being created. I think it is impressive that the Dutch are putting nature reserves close to industrial areas - it provides additional encouragement to do industrial activities in an environmentally friendly way.

No attempt to make a hype on a spot that is very promising. Compare ndsm Amsterdam. (And that's about the only thing 020 is better in then 010.....

This place is fantastic, but definitely reccomend doing the cruise to Maasvlakte 1 and Maasvlakte 2. The guide is in Dutch, but you can connect your phone to a GPS tour in different languages - so a pair of headphones is really useful. You learn loads about the newest part of Rotterdam port and can see loads of interesting stuff from the boat. The museum is also very good as well, with some excellent interactive displays for children and a small cafe. Make sure the wind doesn't blow your hat away.
