I visited the museum with my friend. The great news many may not be aware of ... if you study in Groningen, you get a free admission! The museum displays both old and modern art. I particularly enjoyed very broad exhibition of Maarten Bass.

Groninger Museum is a must see when visiting. The architecture is amazing, make sure you see all the passages and rooms. There is a lot of modern art, check for exhibitions before going. It si very close to train station, recommended when visiting from Amsterdam.

The museum itself is a work of art. It has a great collection, but i love the special Exhibition. It's on a great location, nearby city center and public transport

A must visit for anyone going to Groningen. Set in front of a river and smack in the center of the city.

While we could only persuade one of the teenagers to join then we had an interesting 3 hours exploring the museum. We especially liked the diversity of the museum with something for everyone, classical art, history and indeed very challenging contemporary art. Worth a visit

Colorful expressionist paintings taking you through Groningen and beyond. Also a room with single masterpieces worth checking. Of course there is a room with regents and rich people paintings amongst Israels masterpieces and also Rubens and a Single van Gogh; really nice.

The museum has different expositions from modern art to history. The building is very modern and is locaties on kind of a Island. The entrance fee comparing the expositions is far to high. For disabled is it suitable but not easy to locate wich elevator...More

I simply expected more from the museum, even though the Rodin exhibition was excellent which was the reason to go.
