Groninger Museum

Extroverted and multicoloured building in the water

These walls exude creative energy. Do you like it? The Groninger Museum was established in 1994, and has been a talking point in modern architecture ever since. This alone may be sufficient reason for a visit. Enjoy the complete experience of the varied and interesting collection and the innovative and sometimes provocative temporary exhibitions.

Colour in the water

Visitors to Groningen cannot miss it. As you walk from the main railway station into the city, you are likely to cross the colourfulmuseum bridge. This is also the route to the entrance of the Groningen Museum; a post-modern building in the ring of canals. This daring building was designed by Italian Alessandro Mendini in collaboration with De Luchi, Starck and Coop Himmelb(l)au. The three pavilions all differ yet together form a patently obvious whole.
