Appreciated the free entrance for students. There is a very wide selection from ancient to modern art, suitable for all tastes. Nice to walk around. The gift store is also very well stocked. Very nice and creative exterior on the water as well.

We went to the Groninger because we are huge fans of the Memphis era and its designers like Ettore Sottsass and Michael Graves. The building itself is a work of art and their exhibitions always seem to fit the building. Love coming here!
