It was a very good exhibition. With a good, free, explaination about Rodin and its passion for nude. We enjoyed it a lot.

I went to the Groninger Museum to visit the Rodin retrospective exhibition (on display until April/2017). It is one of the best-curated retrospective exhibitions of great sculptors I've ever seen: excellent selection of works, clever display, very informative support materials and guides, and a narrative process centered on materials and the creative process that is engaging and intuitive. I highly... More

This building is already becoming old fashioned. Built in the 90's, and not at all suitable for an art collection. Not to mention the narrow bridge between central station and the city centre, where people on bikes and pedestrians hope to reach the other side alive. The concept of the building is supposed to be art itself, but hey, do... More

Great Rodin exhibition on show until April 2017. Why go ? This is a very well curated collection. Almost as extensive as Musee Rodin in Paris (from whose archive a majority of the pieces are on loan) but with an emphasis on how the pieces were made rather than just their artistic beauty. So for example you learn not only... More

This is such a quirky museum, and the Rodin exhibition was well worth visiting! (on until April 2017) It's not huge but the way it's been designed is mind blowing!

The Rodin exhibition is worth going to, particularly given poverty of other offerings in Groningen and surroundings. But pretty pricey at EUR 18. Building itself is a maze and a blot on the urban landscape.

A temporary exhibition of Rodins sculptures was the reason to visit the museum again. It was well exhibited. Disappointing was the lack of an autotour, though it was signposted as available. To know more about this well known sculpturist a visit to this exhibition is recommended.
