Permanent activity

The Dr. Elie van Rijckevorsel Hall (private)

The room named after Dr. Elie van Rijckevorsel has the warm, intimate feeling of a gentlemen's club.

Chesterfield chairs, authentic temple doors, dark wood, wainscot paneling from a Thai ship, and an open kitchen combine to give the room a cozy but elegant atmosphere.

The space is suitable for meetings, private dinners and receptions. It is equipped with a smartboard. The Dr. Elie van Rijckevorsel Hall is located on the fourth floor of the museum and has a magnificent view out over the Maas River and the Erasmus Bridge. 

This rooftop room was named after Elie van Rijckevorsel, an important patron of the museum. The room features ceiling paintings of his travels as well as original artifacts.

The Erasmusstichting helped to furnish the Dr. Elie van Rijckevorsel Hall.
