Museum Rotterdam wordt Underground Jazzclub

Museum Rotterdam becomes Underground Jazz Club

Swing along between 8:00 PM and 12:00 AM in Museum Rotterdam at Coolhaven 375. A free evening out as part of the Tuschinski Festival programming.

Jazz during the occupation

After the devastating bombing of May 14, 1940, the need for a different reality is great. Dancing bans, curfews and blackouts make little impression on a population that wants to go out. In Rotterdam, Katendrecht, with its whorehouses, gambling dens and opium dens, is off limits to German soldiers. Right here you can still hear pure jazz.

Forbidden (not) to swing

The Dutch government wants to regain control of the youth that ran wild during the war after the liberation with a swing ban. A ban that is precisely not that applies in the Underground Jazz Club of Museum Rotterdam. The exciting sounds of our Rotterdam Jazz Band ensure that you cannot sit still!

Jazz club Museum Rotterdam is part of the programming of the Tuschinski Festival (13 and 14 September). The festival is all about performances, exhibitions and walks to honor the legacy of Rotterdam entrepreneur Abraham Tuschinski.

Museum Rotterdam

Museum Rotterdam currently has one location that is open to the public and education: Museum Rotterdam '40-'45 NU at the Coolhaven. Here everything revolves around the Second World War and the bombing of May 1940. At the same time, the museum works on visibility in the city through, among other things, the loan of pieces from the collection, educational programs, lectures, city walks and presentations.

Museum Rotterdam is currently working hard on the development of a new city museum. A place where Rotterdam's heritage is preserved, shared and brought to life and that inspires and connects people. Together with the municipality of Rotterdam, a permanent location is being sought to establish the new museum.
