Yes, there are interesting things to see if you like 'modern art'. The work of the DE PLOEG- group is impressive as such, and there are other expositions. The fact that I do not remember them only says that is was not my taste.. Nothing bad on the qualitiy of the work but I prefer other types of musea, those... More

Always nice to visit. Varied expositions and nice shop. Best to visit the city by train, the museum is just across the train station. It's a nice walk from the museum through the Folkingestraat to the centre of the city.

Masterworks, local items, modern art, stories of human interest, a decent cafe. It's all here! Super easy to get to as we came in on the train and within 5 minutes were inside the exhibits.

Always an enjoyable starting point for a visit to the museum. As we travel for a couple of hours it is always good to have a lunch dish with something to drink. Food is good and the service is decent. Be aware that the place is most times pretty filled with customers but it doesn't disturb the experience. To be... More

The architecture (inside and outside) of this building is mindblowing next to the quality of the art. Very close to the railwaystation and certainly within the top 5 NL-museums of contemporary art. Artlovers: you have to visit this.

Already when approaching the beautifully designed Museum complex, centered in one of the connecting canals of Groningen, you feel the positive spirit that these buildings are literally pouring on you. A piece of art by itself. The different sections of the Museum, designed by Alessandro Mendini in cooperation with architects like Philippe Starck, Michele de Lucchi and Coop Himmelb(l)au, all...

First of all: the museum is very well situated right opposite the railway station. There is a permanent collection of regional artifacts and also a nice display of silver. But the most important reason to go and see this museum, besides the stunning architecture, are the theme expositions like for instance the very popular Russian Paintings a while ago. And... More

A fabulous and interesting place to visit. Good example of modern architecture and such a contrast to buildings like the railway station.
