My husband and I enjoyed this museum very much. The art exhibition was delightful and gave us a greater understanding of the history of this city. We also enjoyed the permanent exhibition.

The main interest for me was the collection of modern art, which was very thin indeed. Museum is an ugly concrete building opposite the central station. Only intersting thing about the museum was the empty exhibition space on the 3rd floor.

The building is very unusual and an eclectic architectural gem. Very bold. I've seen many good exhibitions in the Groningen Museum.
