This town was like a mini Amsterdam with lots of wonderful cafes and shops. Even though I was with natives who knew the area well, I would have been curious to visit this stark Big Bird yellow building without windows. This was full of families,...More

Groninger Museum is located way up north of the Netherlands. It is a short walking distance away from the main train station, very convenient for a day-excursion. Although it’s a small museum, visit this for its unique architecture.

the Groninger museum offers expositions of modern and more classic art, which are intersting for a broad public, often including children.

Great collection of Groningen art. Good explanations on the audio guide, which was sometimes a bit tricky to use. The building itself is one of a kind and will not appeal to everyone, though it did to me. Not to be missed when visiting Groningen.

Quite small museum and besides a few nice paintings not much special in my opinion. Also very noisy for a musuem. Could not listen to the music which was played in a certain area due to the guides talking very loud to their groups

Excellent museum of art with changing temporary exhibitions of modern art. The staff is very helpful. The design of the museum converts the museum itself to a piece of art. Special educational programmes for children.

We enjoyed both permanent and temp collections, which are quite sizable. Our favourite was the porcelains and Delft blue collections from China, Japan and the Netherlands. We also joined the special excursion to Borgens (estates) outside of Groningen. It was a good half-day tour on...More

I visited the museum with my friend. The great news many may not be aware of ... if you study in Groningen, you get a free admission! The museum displays both old and modern art. I particularly enjoyed very broad exhibition of Maarten Bass.

Groninger Museum is a must see when visiting. The architecture is amazing, make sure you see all the passages and rooms. There is a lot of modern art, check for exhibitions before going. It si very close to train station, recommended when visiting from Amsterdam.
