-Information Centre
Would you like to know more about the most recent exhibition, or about an artist? More about fashion, photography, design, or painting? The Groningen Museum Library, which is over a century old, can answer many of your questions. You will find literature on all the Museum's collections: Visual Art - both modern and old, Regional Archaeology and History, and Applied Art.

The Library has a unique collection of exhibition catalogues, without compare in the northern Netherlands, obtained primarily via trading with museums throughout the world. The extensive collection of books on Chinese and Japanese applied art and the magazines on fashion and trends are of especial interest.

Pictures of the works in the Museum collection and overviews of the exhibition rooms can be found in the image archives.
These images can be purchased and/or hired. Please contact the Image Archives(beeldarchief@groningermuseum.nl) for more information.

Hours of opening: Tuesday through Friday, 10 AM - 5 PM


- Mendini Restaurant
A cup of coffee, a delectable lunch, delicious friandises in the shape of the Museum ... a great deal of thought has gone into all the products, as you can taste! The menu always has a special connection to the exhibition currently being shown.

Just like the Groninger Museum collection, the cafe menu is characterised by the combination of regional, national and international highlights.

Real specialities are three miniature cakes in the shape of the Groninger Museum, consisting of the Starck pavilion in marzipan, Mendini's golden tower in passion fruit bavarois, and the Coop Himmelb(l)au pavilion in chocolate.
