Phenomenal exposition of Werkman and Song Dong. We thouroughly and enjoyed our time here. All well layed out, presented and explained. One of the best museum visits since Van Gogh Museum. The building is designed by Mendinni.

I really enjoyed my time in the museum and I totally forgot the time in there. Especially the Song Dong exhibition. It was stunning. It is next to the train station, good location and special building! I would like to go a second time, it is a great experience.

The Groninger museum is definitely worth the visit. It is nice to see the building from the outside, enjoy the architecture, but it is also great to see the art collection. Some modern aet is a bit too modern for me, but that is just a case of personal taste, Visited the museum twice and enjoyed both visits. Take special... More

The Waste Not section of Song Dong.... blew my... More

The first time I came to this museum it was a bit weird. The Architecture is confusing! It lets you think and if you think you understood you wrong and again and again!

When we visited it had a couple of modern art installation exhibitions - one room consisted entirely of the hoard of junk collected by the artists mother over several decades in china. I've seen similar things before, and not been impressed. I was hoping for some insight into the history and development of the town.
