Still haven’t seen The Rolling Stones – Unzipped? Not to worry! We’ve built an online Unzipped exhibition for all the fans.
A ticket for this virtual experience full of new content costs €5.
There is an English version available, click EN at the top left when you are in the online exhibition.
How it works!
What to expect
In this virtual visit to the museum, you can access the galleries through a link on your computer, tablet or smartphone and spend hours wandering around and looking at everything at your leisure. You’ll have the museum all to yourself, so it will be nice and quiet. Arrows will guide you through the museum and down the mosaic staircase in the entrance hall. Downstairs, you’ll enter the exhibition, where you’ll see the reconstruction of the Rolling Stones’ old flat, photographs of the band’s early years, plenty of stage outfits, their guitars and drum set, and much more.
Can I really see the entire Unzipped exhibition?
You will see a 360-degree photographic representation of the Unzipped exhibition, from beginning to end, with a bonus room full of photographs of the Stones taken by Andy Zuidema.
It will look real, but we are of course unable to show everything exactly as it appears in the physical exhibition. Owing to legal restrictions, and sometimes because of technical limitations, not all audio fragments, videos and music included in the real exhibition are available in the online one.
Plenty of new material
On the other hand, the online exhibition includes plenty of never-before-seen videos that aren’t part of the physical exhibition, like:
- razor-sharp close-ups of objects such as Charlie Watts’ drum set
- a spectacular timelapse of the reconstruction of the band’s flat in Edith Grove (the Stones’ base in the 1960s)
- museum director Andreas Blühm’s favourite exhibition highlights, accompanied by his commentary on Keith Richards’ diary and the famous album Sticky Fingers.
How does it work?
You can buy a ticket to the Unzipped online exhibition through the Groninger Museum website. After purchase, you’ll receive an email containing a code and a link. You can use these to log in and start your virtual visit. After you begin, you’ll have 48 hours to view the exhibition, and then your visit will automatically end. If you wish to extend it, you will have to buy a new ticket.
What about the prize draw?
Your ticket purchase helps to support the museum in these difficult times. We are deeply grateful. As a thank-you, you’ll get a chance to win something special. Everyone who buys a ticket to the Unzipped online exhibition will be included in a draw to win one of three catalogues signed by Mick Jagger or a signed limited edition Ronnie Wood print!
What is the best way to view the online exhibition?
Laptop or desktop provide the best experience.
