This is a nice museum that gives an interesting look at Groningen's past. They have a new exhibit called 'Groningen in 1470' that features an interactive tour of medieval Groningen.

Visit Holland! THEREFORE, visit Groningen! The province is always neglected in favour of Amsterdam.

“Well organised museum on dutch shipping history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2011

The museum is housed is some old buildings that are connected by a lot of stairs. Going around the museum is an adventure in itself and for those who are tall: mind your head! The displays cover a long time of dutch maritime history and the focus is on the smaller inland waterways ships. Most of the information texts at the items on display are in dutch but many items are self explanatory. A special section of the museum is dedicated to propulsion machines for ships where you can see old steam and diesel engines. All-in-all, well worth the low price of € 4,- (Sept, 2011)
