Groninger Museum, Groningen

4.3
Housed in three pavilions, each designed by a different architect, Groninger Museum displays modern and contemporary art. The museum opened in 1874, but the current construction wasn't completed until 1994. Take in the distinct pavilions, a silver cylindrical building, a yellow tower, and a blue deconstructivist space. These structures merge seamlessly into one museum located on the canal. Explore the museum to see local, national, and international works of art. If you'd like a more in-depth understanding of the exhibits, choose from one of the several tours offered.

  • Great little museum. Attractive architecture, beautifully arranged exhibits, great atmosphere and very friendly employees. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Fantastic exhibitions during my visit. The design and architecture of the place itself is well worth the admission. Brilliantly located between the train station and Groningen itself. Great to see such a brave statement for arts and culture being given pride of place.
