ABOUT THE MUSEUM GRONINGER MUSEUM

By reputation, the Groninger Museum is a spectacular venue for high-profile and interdisciplinary exhibitions in the fields of avant-garde fashion and design.

Since its opening in 1994, the building, designed by Alessandro Mendini, has both been recognized as an international milestone of postmodern architecture and become a major landmark in the city.
Groningen has a lively cultural climate, with major events like Eurosonic/Noorderslag, Noorderzon and photographic manifestation Noorderlicht, and offers a wide range of hotels. Your visit to David Bowie is may well be the best opportunity to spend some time in Groningen you’ll ever have!
