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!

We enjoyed the very varied exhibits including a fadhion designer and a history of the area. There was a quirky film about students at the university and a really good quality shop!

I visited the Groninger Museum while in the city for a few days. There were a variety of exhibitions ranging from the old to more modern art. There are paintings, guitars, some weird attempts at fashion and even the building itself is a work of art. If you are in the city for a few days its certainly worth a... More

Very modern museum! I really enjoy the fact that its shape in like a ship! Also, it is very good that they change the exhibitions every 2 months. It is definitely worth visiting!
