Our Story

Storyworld is the newest museum of comics, animation and games in the Netherlands, but it’s also the coolest and the most fun.

Storytelling is a gift

But how do we identify the art?

What can you see and do at Storyworld?

Every single character, figure and superhero started life as a pencilled line on a blank sheet of paper. Storyworld unlocks the secrets of the great storytellers, showcasing Dutch and international successes in comics, animation and games. From the Smurfs and Lucky Luke to The Lion King, Aladdin and Fortnite.

Storyworld is also a place for you to get hands-on with all the building blocks and features of comics, animation and games. Discover what it takes to understand a graphic story and how to create one yourself.

Collection: comics, animation and games

We’ve built up an extensive, contemporary collection of works in the domain of comics, animation and games. It includes cartoon storyboards, animated film props and games you can play together. Part of our comic collection was inherited from the Comic Museum, which closed early in 2019.

In the Forum

You’ll find Storyworld on the sixth floor of Forum Groningen. We’re open from 11 January!
