Address, driving directions and parking

Visiting address
Museumeiland 1
9711 ME Groningen
The Netherlands

By public transport
The Museum is situated opposite the bus and railway station and within easy walking distance of the city centre. Train travel information can be obtained from the Netherlands Railways information services.

By car
Coming via the A7 or A28 (via Zwolle), follow from the 'Europaplein' the signposts for 'Centrum'. Then follow the P-route which will enable you to park your car in the city centre. Along the P-route, digital signs indicate whether or not space is available in the car parks ('vol' or 'vrij'). If a car park is full ('vol'), follow the parking route on to the next one.
If you wish to stay longer in the city centre, it is more convenient and less expensive to park your car on the edge of town and take the P+R Citybus to the inner city. As you approach town, signs will indicate the way to the nearest P+R Citybus point.

Parking in the car parks

If you wish to park near the Museum at a favourable charge, we advise you to go to the Q-Park Museum Centrum car park (on the ‘Zuiderdiep’ avenue). On showing your entrance ticket, you can buy a special Museum exit ticket. Five hours’ parking in the Q-Park Museum Centrum car park will then cost € 10,50. For groups visiting the Museum outside normal hours of opening, it is possible to order exit tickets in advance, if required.
Hours of opening of the Q-Park Museum Centrum car park
Monday through Sunday from 7 AM - 7 PM, Thursday until 10 PM.
