A temporary exhibition of Rodins sculptures was the reason to visit the museum again. It was well exhibited. Disappointing was the lack of an autotour, though it was signposted as available. To know more about this well known sculpturist a visit to this exhibition is recommended.

The Museum is only minutes from the town centre and across from the train station. Well worth spending 3 hours here. There is something for everyone one.all exhibits have explanation in English so easy to follow and understand.

Wentel tot the Rodin-exhibition in the Groninger Museum. Absolutely wonderful. As were Erwin Olaf's photo's of Nude males in the same position in which Rodin shaped his status.

Excellent place in The Netherlands to look at Rodin's work as a sculptor. Must see if you did not have the opportunity in Montreal or Paris.

The Rodin exhibition is much larger than I expected. If I am not mistaken, the main piece is not the original bronze, instead it's the white marble. The other exhibitions are decent (example Groningen history) but expected more. The building is superb, impressive architecture.
