Collection of the Groninger Museum

Ploeg Pavilion

29 March 2014 to 31 December 2017

The Groninger Museum presents highlights from its own collection. All the museum curators have collaborated on this exceptional project. For instance, there is a treasure chamber that features the large collection of Groningen silver and an exhibition room displaying masterpieces, especially paintings from the Golden Age. In addition, attention is paid to Groningen history and culture, in which De Ploeg artists' association and its context have been allocated a fixed position. The last three rooms are devoted to (inter)national modern art: modernism, post-modernism and contemporary art, fashion and design, respectively.
