I consider myself lucky to be there during the David Bowie exhibition. It was wonderful to see his difference in that time and uniqueness with future-designed costumes while listening and watching his concerts on walls of the museum. One does not have to love rock to visit that extraordinary museum, I suggest everyone to see it.

If you go to Groningen for a holiday or live in Groninger the Groninger museum is a must see. It is a very modern and nice museum and they have really nice temporary exhibits, I live in Groningen and visit each one. Their own collections is not great but the temporary exhibits can be really great.

The museum's Memphis exterior, once its main attraction, now seems dated. The museum's collection is ok, nothing special. However the museum does have very good temporary exhibitions. At the time of my visit, the main draw was the David Bowie exhibition, but, not being a Bowie fan, I much preferred the Joris Laarman exhibit, absolutely fascinating and a peek into... More

This is the best David Bowie overview you can get! Hurry up and get your tickets, it's the last tour of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, David Bowie is Exhibition. Audio tour included... it's a multimedia experience you don't often get!
