This museum is a must do in Amsterdam. The lines are long so it is very helpful to purchase tickets in advance. Provides the life story on Van Gogh to get an understanding of how his painting style changed over his life. The audio guide was very informative.

As its name suggests, this gallery houses a huge collection of Van Gogh's work, beautifully displayed and tells the story of his short life and painting career. There is an excellent quiz for children.

Went on a Friday night when they're open late and it wasn't too crowded. I bought my ticket in advance but the regular line didn't look as long as I expected. There was a live band and then a DJ playing, which I thought was pretty cool. The museum was well designed and informative. I liked that it didn't just... More

Obviously this museum contains many works of the genius Van Gogh. It is worth to remember that some of the masterpieces of the dutch painter are not here but in Paris or New York, but this museum is still a must for fans of this artist.

My husband and I visited this museum after the Rijks Museum and to tell you the truth I liked it better, I loved hearing about Van Goghs life and illness. It is worth getting the audio guide as it talks you through the art work opening your eyes to his history and his family. Well worth a visit, we were... More

Fantastic venue for understanding an appreciating Van Gogh's work and his developments as both an artist and as an adult. As you climb the floors, you can see his work progress in complexity and color and subject. The kids stayed engaged through the genius of the museum supplied workbooks. They loved searching for various items hidden in plain sight on... More

No trip to Amsterdam is complete without a visit to the Van Gogh Museum. Thanks to Vincent's sister-in-law, and nephew the museum houises an incredible collection of Van Gogh's works, plus a selection of his contemporaries, among them, Seurat, Monet, Gauguin. That so many of Van Gogh's paintings, drawings, and studies are in one place is extraoridnary considering the multi-milion... More

If you want to see Van Gogh, this is definitely the place to do so. The museum's collection is amazing. I didn't love the layout. It was difficult to get close to many paintings, despite the fact that there were only light to moderate crowds. However, the space is beautifully maintained and it would be a shame to miss this...

Be sure to have some sort of museum pass to bypass the always huge lines! And expect to feel crowded inside. A fine collection of Van Gogh with a selection of works by his contemporaries. Some fun computer aids, comparing the 3 versions of his famous bedroom painting, and of a Parisian painting with photos of the actual site. If... More
