Reserve your tickets and entry time ahead of time... months ahead of time... to avoid the long queue.

Any art lovers must visit to Van Gogh Museum which traces his early works and his tortured life right through to his death. There are many of his self portraits and some of his most acclaimed works. This is a compact, easy to get around museum and a must visit site.

A nice intro in the auditorium helped through the museum tour. I was impressed by the number of van gogh paintings displayed.

WIsh we had pre-booked tickets. Expensive to get in and get audio tour (I felt worth the money). Very crowded, so if you want to go and have a peaceful moment perhaps try first or last thing. We got there 1 hour after opening, not at it's busiest but still crowded.

The Van Gogh Museum shouldn't be missed if you are in Amsterdam. This museum not only houses a large number of Van Gogh's paintings, but also explains the life of Van Gogh as you travel room to room. The narratives written on each of the walls explains the background, Van Gogh's emotional states, and history at the time of the... More

I bought our tickets online on my phone. Very easy and they scanned the bar code with no issues. Doing it ahead of time, with a time slot, puts you at the head of the line. The exhibit was excellent and actually better than I had expected. Anyway, do it online and forget the torture.

We booked tickets beforehand and were glad we did- there was a rather big line! But once we were in it was busy, but there weren't too many people to enjoy the art work. The first floor is the most spectacular, with painting like 'Sunflowers' and 'Almond Blossoms' there to enthral and delight. I also really enjoyed looking at paintings... More

Whilst I had obviously anticipated seeing all of Van Gogh's most famous paintings, I was pleasantly surprised by the broad selection of Van Gogh's earlier, and much darker, works. This completely different style of art, admittedly not my cup of tea, provided a really interesting progression and contrast from what we all know and love. Easy to get lost amongst... More

Large collection of classic Van Gogh as well early attempts (not always successful) that developed the style we know today. Beautiful museum, nicely organized art but getting into museum a little confusing.
