The Museumpark is located on the former estate of the Hoboken family, who lived in the villa that now houses the Natural History Museum Rotterdam. The characteristic park is on a modest scale (100 x 400 metres) and links all of the buildings around the Museumpark with one another.

Yves Brunier and OMA

The part of the Museumpark between the Erasmus University Medical Centre and the Rose Garden was designed by Rem Koolhaas/OMA in close collaboration with the French landscape architect Yves Brunier (1962-1991) and the designer Petra Blaisse. The park has a very innovative design: four chambers, each with its own layout, use and mood. The square in front of the Kunsthal faces a romantic natural zone with trees, water, winding pathways and a bridge with sparkling stones. The bridge itself affords a wonderful view of the Kunsthal. Various work of art are placed in the park, so that the Museumpark also functions as an open air museum.
