A strange mix of exhibition's... Lots of information on the area. Easy to follow everything in Dutch, English and German.

A unusual exhibition that you can walk through. Also a don't look down!! ( glass you can walk over) that has about a thirty foot drop over the water.

The building itself is set half in the water. So has some unique architecture.

If you are lucky the bridge outside will go up and you can get a glimpse of some very interesting artwork underneath it.

It's a interesting place to kill a couple of hours.

Very interesting , the building itself is worth visiting apart from the exhibitions , it's quite distinctive and very central . Each time I have been there the exhibitions are terrific. The lobby and stairway has a spectacular glass installation there permanently . Nice cafe for a cup of coffee . Downstairs , under water there are children's activities . Well worth a few hours visit.

Exhibition to celebrate the life and career of the late Alessandro Mendini - who considered this museum building his masterpiece. Playfull and inspiring lay out of the exhibition with a complete overview of his career. In addition we saw an excellent photo exhibition of top ( Dutch ) artists with world fame.

I originally went for the Chihuly’s Grand Stairwell Installation, however, for me this ended up being my least favourite experience of the day. MONDO MENDINI is an excellent exhibition, however, for the the highlight of the day was Daan Roosegaarde – Presence, its an excellent truly interactive and I went back to several times for more fun. The museum does have a fantastic range of art and will keep you busy for hours.

Museum is delightful piece of architecture. Part of museum was closed off as “ under Rolling Stones exhibition construction”. Remainder of museum exhibition we found to be more of few collections dug from storage and just displayed. No structure or whatsoever - apart maybe some “ self pity as its collections maybe not so great” like other museums ( in Randstad). Enough variety though to find/see some interesting stuff.

We are not that much of art lovers. Still we enjoyed our visit to the museum. A lot of different things to see with enough explanation ( but not too much). Especially the second floor with the picture exposition was very nice. We liked the interpretation of children with some of the pictures a lot. Next visit will be with our children. Also for them a lot to see.
Don’t forget to order your tickets online as there are time slots.

The marvelous Dale Chihuly glass art exhibition in the Groninger museum is not to be missed. Colorful, accessible, stunning, enchanting, uplifting and even family friendly. I had seen his enormous chandeliers before in the opulent Marsa Malaz hotel in Doha, Qatar - and now so much more and so much more colorful in Groningen. Be there before May 6th, 2019, or be square!

Apart from Dale Chihuly, the Grrrom exhibition about animals being central, and the normal very high quality Collection exhibition, are very much worthwhile. The museum is just opposite Central Station and in fact along the shortest walkway to the medieval city centre of Groningen. Altogether very much worth a trip up north!

Great museum with a great exhibition about Mondo Mendini. Next to that there is the regular collection that is definitely worth seeing.

I visited the Groningen Museum for the third time in the last years ,using my museum card .I was curious to see their temporary exhibitions and especially the ceramics of Alessandro Mendini .
I love this modern museum ,the building is a work of art in itself ,it can be seen from the railway station.The museum is located on an artificial island ,near a canal.Its unusual geometric forms captures my attention.It looks like a ship whose captain was the famous Italian architect Mendini,who died this year.A bridge connects the museum with the station for trains .The heart of the museum is the yellow tower ,it is golden because the treasures of the collection is there.Mondo Mendini was my favourite section ,presenting a wide selection of Alessandro 'swork .I could also admire the ceramic and glass objects from the past and present in the Starck Pavillion,my favourite building ,where you can get lost ,like in a game .My favourite piece is the chair of Mendini ,a real masterpiece ,which makes me smile .
