The first time I came to this museum it was a bit weird. The Architecture is confusing! It lets you think and if you think you understood you wrong and again and again!

When we visited it had a couple of modern art installation exhibitions - one room consisted entirely of the hoard of junk collected by the artists mother over several decades in china. I've seen similar things before, and not been impressed. I was hoping for some insight into the history and development of the town.

When you're visiting Groningen, you should definitely visit the Groninger Museum; it's a nice museum and they always have interesting expositions.

This modern building houses several exhibitions, not all are equally appealing to my taste, but the Modern section really peeked my interests. And they had few hidden gems there as well, from Rembrandt to Warhol! Loved the spiral staircase. Friendly staff, and a sweet little museum cafe!

The restaurant is nicely located overlooking the canal/water surrounding the Museum. The food is good, tasty but not exceptional. Service was efficient and friendly!

Apart from the current exposition, the building itself is interresting. In the basement you walk with your eyes at water front.

Nothing interesting inside, super booring, there are just a couple of paintings that deserve attention. For the rest I would advise to enjoy the city ... but skip museum!
