Visit the University Museum and learn about the history of it and its teachers. Apart from that The museum has an impressing anatomical collection and an art gallery. Unfortunately these are not exhibited until 1 october 2014, so I will go again then. The museum is perfect for a short break or in my case a massive downpour. Opening times are Tuesday to Sunday 1 pm - 5 pm (free entry). An information brochure is provided for free at the reception desk.

Small but certainly interesting museum in center of Groningen. Starting with modern day archaeology examples , but also in past collected items and tribute to first female Dutch physician and advocate for women’s vote rights. Interesting collection of anatomy related samples ( Enschede collection).

I really, really liked this museum. There weren't that many objects but rather stories, they were very interesting though and closely related to our modern ways of life such as health and wellbeing. That being said, there were still many things on display. Also, free entry!

Wonderful collection and exhibits. However, they could not be appreciated as there was no English translation. Everything was in Dutch only, could not understand anything. If there were at least English translations of the major things, it would've been a worthwhile visit.

It was kind of surprising for me, it was quite good. You will find some guide tour for the museum, they also provide English tour guide. However I found that the museum did not organize that well.

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 in English so pretty much anyone can enjoy the exhibition. Lots of stuff to see as well. Very clean museum as well, not as big as you'd expect but come on, 3 euros!

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.
