What is a Salon?

In the 18th century small, interested crowds consisting of for example scholars, art aficionados, and philosophers gathered to discuss a new book, admire a new art work, or get to know a travelling philosopher. The Groninger Museum Salon invites you to get to talk to the museum’s director and curators, to artists, designers, thinkers, and to each other.

The ever remarkable Groninger Museum offers an inspiring environment and interesting people to talk to. You are granted exclusive admission to exhibitions, a preview for example, or a unique glimpse behind the scenes. We show you surprising, new, and rarely displayed art pieces. You meet artists from home and abroad who gladly tell you about their work.
