Collection of the Groninger Museum

It’s hard to imagine a more varied collection than the Groninger Museum’s. Items on view range from Stone Age flint tools to paintings by the Groningen artists’ society De Ploeg.

It’s hard to imagine a more varied collection than the Groninger Museum’s. Items on view range from Stone Age flint tools to paintings by the Groningen artists’ society De Ploeg. An extensive trove of Groningen silver, including a miniature Martini tower, is on display in the Treasure Room, while the Masterpiece Room
showcases 17th-century paintings. Numerous items in the pavilion reflect the history and culture of Groningen. The last rooms are devoted to Dutch and international modern art, fashion and design, with Pieke Bergmans’ “From the Sky” as a highlight.
