Good to understand more from the culture from north Netherlands. Very colorful. It's in a canal, which makes it even more interesting. It has a cool store and a cozy café.

I found the ticket prices far too high for the collection they have. There are always temporary exhibitions plus a stable exhibition. Nevertheless, there is not so much to see for this price and quite some items are just uninteresting. Consider going there when you have museum card though

Loved the collection of modern art and it is definitely worth a visit. Friendly staff but the restaurant was overly full when we wanted o go and have lunch so we were forced to leave and go elsewhere.

The building itself is an amazing work of art and a photographer's dream from any angle, and there are many. The art is very well displayed - not cluttered or crowded which allowed for the pieces to shine. The staff happy to help and direct you around the intriguing inside of the building. The obligatory museum shop had interesting and... More

mostly modern art. Not huge amount. The building is fairly neat. €13 entrance fee, but they do take the Museum card (highly recommended).

Visit the museum, it's fantastic. But don't go here for a serious meal. The service is very good, that's not the point. It's the lack of staff and focus on restaurant-worthy food that makes this a place to visit and admire, but not a place to have your dinner. Next time I go here, I'll just get a coffee, which...

Very nice building opposing Groningen Central Station. Just to see the museum itself is a great visit in itself.

Recently restored, this is a must-see in Groningen. It is efficiently administered (what isn't in the Netherlands), and has all kinds of little perks: with a cube purchased on entry you can scan many of the displays, and arrange them on your own personal website of the museum, to enjoy again later. Take the time to see it, even if... More
