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).

Recently restored, this is a must-see in Groningen. It is efficiently administered (what isn't in the Netherlands), and has all kinds of little perks: with a cube purchased on entry you can scan many of the displays, and arrange them on your own personal website of the museum, to enjoy again later.

What a building! You walk out of the Central station in Groningen and see this fantastic modern architecture instantly. Inside the colour continues to wow you. Each room has a different colour theme that really helps to make the most of the exhibits. There is a mix of all artworks from paintings to sculptures, fashion designs and even some quirky... More

One section of the museum was very different not our cup of tea, but the last section we visited almost by accident was excellent of more traditional old masters paintings.
