Groninger Museum, Groningen

(4.2/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Groninger Museum and other Groningen attractions into our Groningen trip builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • in front of the station so very convenient, Central, but their shows are not up to much. Are themed with African arts or Russian

  • Beautiful exhibits, now that about Rodin. The Groninger Museum has a name! The entourage is also pleasant, and a good restaurant and attractive shop.

  • Great Rodin exhibition on show until April 2017. Why go ? This is a very well curated collection. Almost as extensive as Musee Rodin in Paris (from whose archive a majority of the pieces are on loan) ...  more »
