a house in its original state from 1933Rotterdam
Get your entrance card for the museum house at the NAi, the large museum next to the Sonneveld house. When you have bought a ticket you can enter the house of the Sonneveld family. Visitors are only allowed to enter the house when wearing these (not so fancy) slippers. You put them over your shoes and I must say it looks very funny. Don’t forget to take an audio tour with, because it gives information that is very nice to know and gives the tour more fun.
Fancy technical gadgets
The modern interior quit surprised me the first time when I visited this place. It doesn’t feel like entering a house from 1933. Most part is decorated with the famous Gispen furniture, made by the Rotterdam designer Willem Gispen. You will find the most surprising technical gadgets, like a massage shower! The Sonneveld family was a wealthy family, that’s why they could afford all these luxury. Most people in Rotterdam were traveling by tram or bicycle these days, but they had two cars. Madam Sonneveld was even the first lady in Rotterdam that was driving a car!

I work in communications and have kept an on-line fashion journal for years. I'll show you around Rotterdam, my home town, a magical place open on the world. Sparkling restaurants, deliciously hidden between sea and sky. My little extra: globetrotter and multi-lingual
