Not comparable with the big museums in Amsterdam, but the Groninger museum is definitely worth a visit. The buildings architecture is quite special and there is a nice collection plus temporary exhibitions. Should be part of your Groningen visit!

Went to the museum and it featured the works of the Chinese artist Song Dong - very interesting. The museum whilst small and not free had a nice range of local artists and a Van Gogh and a Rubens.

We loved the architecture of the museum and enjoyed it from every angle that we looked at it. The exhibition of the Dutch artist H.N. Werkman was really excellent. The exhibition of the Chinese artist Song... More

A lot of very good paintings. Impressionists and expressionists. Among them beautiful portrait of a woman by Antonio Mancini. But you will find hear also artists like Warhol, Dijkstra, Kleima, Werkman. I liked also a watercolors by Alida Pott - my first contact with the artist. Groningen museum certainly knows how to serve attraction - the exposition, the building is... More
