Forum Groningen at Nieuwe Markt 1 and our Forum libraries in the city of Groningen are open to the public. You can wile away the hours watching films, attending events, chilling on the roof, reading the newspaper, riding the escalators and discovering the creative process behind comics, animation and games at Storyworld.
Pre-book your tickets online
If you’re coming to see a film, attend an event or visit the Game On exhibition or the Storyworld museum, pre-book your tickets through this website. This prevents queues at the ticket desk, guarantees you a ticket and means we can contact you if we need to give you information or unexpectedly cancel or postpone something.

Buy your tickets online before your visit and arrive on time
If you are visiting an exhibition, a film screening or another event for which you need a coronavirus entry pass, we recommend buying your tickets online before you visit and please arrive on time. This prevents queues at the ticket desk, gives us the time to scan your coronavirus entry pass, and means we can contact you if we need to unexpectedly cancel or postpone an event.
Face mask rules
You must wear a face mask when walking around in Forum Groningen and during your visit to Game On and Storyworld. You can take it off when you sit down, for example to study or read a book or newspaper.
Café and restaurant
The Cafés and restaurants close their doors at 5pm.
Forum Groningen offers a variety of spaces and activities. You will need to show a COVID certificate in order to access some (but not all) spaces and activities. Below we explain what you can expect for each activity.
