Collection of the Groninger Museum

By showing the exhibition Collection of the Groninger Museum, a long-cherished wish of our guests is fulfilled: the collection of the Groninger Museum permanently on display. This collection can hardly be more varied: everything from flint tools from the Stone Age to a portrait of Aletta Jacobs.

A porcelain service by museum architect Alessandro Mendini; 19 century paintings. One by one, famous works from the permanent collection steal the show. Regional treasures, including a silver miniature of the Martinitoren, portraits of leading local citizens like Aletta Jacobs, and Bronze Age jewellery, beautifully reflect the culture of the city and province of Groningen.
