Fraeylemaborg is the most important of the Borgen or castle in the province. These were strong houses or keeps were built around the Middle Ages to store harvests and to protect their produce from invaders. The building is a testament to the masons who built it as they are as secure today as they ever were. A good place to visit with useful information about the city and its progression through the ages.
The Dutch cartoon museum in English is not to be mistaken for any other kind of museum as the name could suggest. It’s a cool place where you can see the progression of Dutch comics through the years, there is also a chance to learn to draw some characters and cartoons. A lot of the comics are in Dutch but its still a good place to visit.
The Groninger Museum houses exhibitions of modern and contemporary art. It was founded in 1874 and the current building was opened in 1994. The style of building is amazing and reflects the unique style of the country; a bridge connects the museum to the train station is part of a cycling and walking path to the central city. The museum gets many moving exhibitions but is home to some world-class works of art by internationally known artists, for art lovers it is a great place to hang out.
