The museum in itself are a piece of art. Placed on an island with its colorful facades and reflections in the water it is beautiful and majestic. The exhibition halls were painted beautifully and created a nice scene for the actual art. The size is...More

The building of the museum is a little gem in Groningen. We came by to see the "Romantics in the North" exposition, very well organized. The little cafè is also very nice, and very close to the station so that we knew exactly when to...More

Groninger Museum is located way up north of the Netherlands. It is a short walking distance away from the main train station, very convenient for a day-excursion. Although it’s a small museum, visit this for its unique architecture.

the Groninger museum offers expositions of modern and more classic art, which are intersting for a broad public, often including children.

Great collection of Groningen art. Good explanations on the audio guide, which was sometimes a bit tricky to use. The building itself is one of a kind and will not appeal to everyone, though it did to me. Not to be missed when visiting Groningen.

Quite small museum and besides a few nice paintings not much special in my opinion. Also very noisy for a musuem. Could not listen to the music which was played in a certain area due to the guides talking very loud to their groups

Excellent museum of art with changing temporary exhibitions of modern art. The staff is very helpful. The design of the museum converts the museum itself to a piece of art. Special educational programmes for children.
