There wasn't much of a line when I went, but buying tickets online ahead of time might be a good idea. The museum was exactly what you'd expect. Completely worth a visit.

This is an amazing collection of Van Gogh's work. You can buy tickets in advance to skip the lines in the summer. We did that, but the lines were non-existent in October. There is an additional charge for the audio headsets once you are in...More

I've always been a Monet person. But after visiting Van Gogh museum I fell in love for Van Gogh work collection as well. It was nice knowing his life story in such details and understanding how he painted and the learning process he went through....More

I visited the museum with my boyfriend. I am a big fan of Van Gogh, but he was not necessarily beforehand. The museum is laid out in such a way that you can see how his art developed throughout his "career" based on other influences...More

My 25 year old son and I absolutely loved all this talent and story surrounding Vincent van Gogh. We thoroughly enjoyed the audio presentation. We were delighted to have seen the Dutch in Paris special exhibition on until spring 2018. That was a very interesting...More

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping

It really depends on how much information you want to have about each painting. My advice is hear the intro and then move on. IMHO there's only one floor that'll take your time, but you shouldn't have to spend more than... More
