David Bowie dies month after opening Bowie exhibition in Dutch museum

Just a month after the opening of a grand exhibition about David Bowie in the Groninger Museum, Bowie died.

The Groninger Museum runs an exhibition about his work and life, in cooperation with the London Victoria and Albert Museum, where the exhibition was before.
After Bowie's unexpected death the Groninger Museum management was shocked, as they had been preparing the exhibition for the past 2 years.
'We can’t believe it. Over the two years of working on the exhibition David Bowie is, we’ve come to feel as if he were a personal friend.', it says on the website's front page (

The exhibition is open until March 13 2016.

The Groninger Museum, of eccentric architecture, appears not very close to Amsterdam, but is in fact quite well reachable from Amsterdam by train, in about 2 hours and 15 minutes. The museum is a few minutes walk North of the Groningen train station.
To drive there is about 3 hours.

Through the Dutch Railways website you can find out the timetable.
There is no direct train, you must at least change once, in Amersfoort or Almere. Trains go every day between 6am and 11pm, about twice per hour.

On is more info about the exhibition.
