The Groninger Museum houses very good temporary exhibitions in a striking building just across from the main station and on the edge of the old town. It is well worth a visit.

Starting from the 3 pavilions in the canal, extremely well designed museum. That's both as an artwork in itself, and also as a space to navigate. Signs are clear, and info panels are in Dutch, English & German. Some panels especially for kids. Collections range...More
