The Groninger museum is located opposite Central Railway station of Groningen. We had free admission with museum card. The museum is not too big, so you can visit/browse everything within the hour. There different exhibitions of several kinds, ranging from ancient paintings to modern sculptures. This way you do not get easily saturated and different senses are engaged. We like... More

Fascinating modern building - some sections closed depriving us of outside views, but exhibition excellent. Tea room good.

Small town in the north of Holland, but it has everything. Part of the old city centre was destroyed during WW2. But many nice mediaeval and seventeenth century buildings still there. Lots of young people due to the university and many other centers of education.

Also, it contains a restaurant and a gift... More

Good to understand more from the culture from north Netherlands. Very colorful. It's in a canal, which makes it even more interesting. It has a cool store and a cozy café.

I found the ticket prices far too high for the collection they have. There are always temporary exhibitions plus a stable exhibition. Nevertheless, there is not so much to see for this price and quite some items are just uninteresting. Consider going there when you have museum card though

Loved the collection of modern art and it is definitely worth a visit. Friendly staff but the restaurant was overly full when we wanted o go and have lunch so we were forced to leave and go elsewhere.

The building itself is an amazing work of art and a photographer's dream from any angle, and there are many. The art is very well displayed - not cluttered or crowded which allowed for the pieces to shine. The staff happy to help and direct you around the intriguing inside of the building. The obligatory museum shop had interesting and... More

mostly modern art. Not huge amount. The building is fairly neat. €13 entrance fee, but they do take the Museum card (highly recommended).
