There is a good variety of exhibits which makes this a good visit. I have seen a number of international visiting exhibitions. The cafe is quite expensive and not special.

Interesting eclectic collection of art housed in a contemporary building. We particularly enjoyed the Marga Weimans exhibition and masterpieces by Rubens, Mesdag and Gauguin. The museum has a well-stocked shop and a nice restaurant, ideal for lunch or coffee and cake.

Interesting architecture, both inside and outside houses a very interesting and varied collection. Capita selecta II by itself was worth the trip to groningen. Don't miss the info center. Great!

It was a pleasant surprise to find this gem of a museum in Groninger. From the avant-garde architecture of the buildings themselves you get a taste of the collections, which are broad and eclectic. From classical Dutch paintings and art related to Groninger, to very daring and thought-provoking contemporary works from current artists. I was very impressed by the thoughtfulness... More

Went with a girlfriend and found the museum to be quite exciting. Also the shop was very attractive and had some beautiful and reasonable things to purchase which I did. You will love it.

I've been to Groninger Museum three times (thanks to Museumkaart which allows me to visit several museums in the Netherlands for free) and I saw different exhibitions every time I visit the museum, from paintings to contemporary arts, and also some memorabilia from the past. Those exhibitions were displayed for a certain period, so I make sure that I will... More

Great little museum packed with art. Definitely worth your time to visit. The museum building itself is interesting to see and the collection is quite varied. A surprisingly good collection!

I visited the Groninger Museum which lies adjacent to the canal that surrounds central Groningen.  The whimsical museum building was artistically designed by Alessandro Mendini and incorporates the canal’s water into its landscaping.  From Monet and Bonnard to Warhol and Rauschenberg, the collection was impressive and expertly displayed.  Adult admission was 13 Euros in May 2014, but well worth the...

Beautiful building outside and inside. Didn't expect to see such a many famous art works there but the collection was really great. The Natural Beauty exhibition was wonderful and I loved to see the paintings of Monet. Spent there really long time and when we were already ready to leave, we ended up accidentally finding some Warhol art works from... More
