We purchased our tickets in advance and chose an early time to avoid crowds, and so glad we did! We spent a few extra euros and I’m so glad we did! We learned so many extra cool facts about Van Gogh’s life and his painting...More

Van Gough did some strange work, so it was a must do on this visit. Some of the works were much smaller than I'd anticipated. Some of his work was very dark and other simple and almost child like. I came away more knowledgeable about...More

There are some artists you can have enough of after a few dozen canvasses, and then there's Van Gogh who truly *does* merit his own museum. It's fascinating to see how his art changed after he traded Holland for France. While his art can be...More

A must. The most beautiful Flemish collections. But, there is a catch. The waiting line. Try to take your tickets by the net. Good months like February and March, see November, it's an hour of waiting. Also enjoy the neighborhood, to visit the art galleries.

This is a must for Amsterdam. A huge collection of Van Gogh’s works, with the classics, as well as the work of artists he was influenced by. Walks you through his development as a painter, the support of his family and his sad ending.

The museum is laid out in a very logically and useful way. Not everyone wants to visit every exhibit or picture and there is the opportunity to see specific pictures.

We visited this museum and enjoyed the way the story of van Gogh's life was explained and how the painter created the famous works. A combination of paintings, letters and explanation per painting and larger oversights of different people that influenced him and his actions....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
