Familiepicknick aan het water

We invite all Rotterdammers to our birthday party on Saturday, June 1, during the very first (steam) weekend of this summer. Of course while enjoying a snack and a drink!

All ships and cranes in the museum harbor are in top shape. The newly renovated City Grain Suction 19, steam crane Boele 10 and the sturdy steam tugs are under steam and ready for a busy summer of loading/unloading and sailing.

Family picnic by the water

To get off to a good start, we will be holding a family picnic on Saturday, June 1 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM. For a small fee of 150 cents you can enjoy all the goodies that Rotterdam has to offer during this picnic on the water: from poffertjes to falafel and bara. Music and other entertainment are of course also part of a party.

While you can enjoy all those goodies, the City Grain Suction 19 goes to work. Guides will tell you more about how this elevator works and how everything worked on board in the past. And what happened to the bag carriers when the grain suction dredgers arrived in the port? Our blacksmith is also working in the forge to make parts for the ships. If you're lucky, you might even get to help the blacksmith! The steam program lasts from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
