Groninger Museum

Bird of paradise and jack of all trades David Bowie and the colourful and exuberant Groninger Museum are perfectly matched. By reputation, the Groninger Museum is a spectacular venue for high-profile and interdisciplinary exhibitions in the fields of avant-garde fashion and design. Preceded by retrospective exhibitions about Herman Brood in 2006, photographer and music video and film director Anton Corbijn in 2000 and rock star Marilyn Manson in 2014, David Bowie is is a logical link in a chain of music-inspired exhibitions.
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!
