The area that many Rotterdammers may know as the Museum park, was originally an estate of 56 acres in the middle of the city. The former estate of shipowner Anthony van Hoboken, between the Rochussenstraat and the Westzeedijk, used to be one area in the 19th century, with the Villa Dijkzigt as the family’s home.
Now the Land of Hoboken is a collection of city fragments, from a small villa park to a huge hospital. The museum park houses architectural icons such as the Kunsthal, Sonneveld House and Het Nieuwe Instituut, but also lesser known buildings like the Erasmiaans Gymnasium and the Bilderberg Parkhotel. With the construction of the spectacular Depot, the renovation of the Boijmans museum and the recently opened expansion of the Erasmus hospital, the area is still inconstant development.
