This university museum is stuck a couple of decades ago. Nice people, old interior, not really a clear curator's view on what it should focus on. Some nice pieces. Friendly laidback staff.

Because we were students we could enter the museum for 1.50 a person. If you're not a student it's just 3 euros so you really get a lot of bang for your buck. The exhibition was very nicely explained and thoroughly thought out. Everything was...More

The reason of us being in Groningen is because we came to drop our daughter to this university. Best Academia, and catching up fast with colleagues like Oxford, Cambridge & LSE.

If you end up in Groningen, you certainly must visit the old university building in the centre. It is very well preserved and has an amazing atmosphere. Go there in a weekday so you can dive in the student vibe.

This is an agreeable specialist museum, graced by a replica of Ben Feringa's Nobel Prize Medal. The museum gives a fascinating insight into the development of the University of Groningen and the vibrant life around it.

The museum is a great way to see some history. The areas of history covered varies a lot, and the exhibition is quite small. Still a good place to go for a quick history lesson.
