    Visit the Info Center at the Groninger Museum en browse trough the museum collection. The Info Center is beautifully designed by Jaime Hayon. The central table encompasses a massive multitouch screen: the so-called Masterpiece Browser. The themes and connections that abound in the Groninger Museum Collection can be investigated in fun fashion by a number of visitors simultaneously. They can choose a particular work of art from a cloud of connected pieces. Sometimes the objects will correspond in subject, sometimes in purpose or the artist's vision -- the resulting combinations can be surprising. The Masterpiece Browser is a totally new way of presenting information and art, with visitors navigating a route of their own choosing through the abundance of masterpieces, creating their own exhibition. The Museum suggests alternative routes all the while, to further extend the experience. The Masterpiece Browser will take you to places in the Museum Collection you might never have thought to visit yourself. Perhaps someone searching for information on modern art will end up reading about 17th-century sculpture; it's a wonderful way to broaden your horizons. The multitouch screen is also home to a wonderful three-dimensional model of the Groninger Museum building, that can be viewed inside and out, from top to bottom, and from any direction. Not only will you see exactly how the building is put together, you can also learn about the architects, their views and the building's history. Young and old will enjoy the amazing experience!
