Coming to netherlands for a holiday, visiting the Van Gogh museum is a must to me. We got the I Amsterdam pass which helps to move us faster in the queue. There were five storeys showing the different paintings of Van Gogh and by the end of the tour, you will leave knowing the painter much better.

Great if you are a fan of van gogh. They have a lot of collections, so I recommend you not to spend much time on one painting or letter. I was a little bit disappointed to find that they don't have the starry night painting. It's conveniently located in the museum district, called museumplein so there are many other museums... More

I've booked at the internet, and skip line. Good paintings and information about the artist. Definitely, must see at the city. Instead of Amsterdam is know about "liberal place", also has many options of culture life. Take 1/2 hours. Not more.

Was one of the must see things for my wife when we were in Amsterdam. The only disappointment is that Starry Night is not part of the collection here, but still an enjoyable museum visit.

I'm not am art aficionado by any stretch but really enjoyed the visit to Van Gogh's museum. There were some very impressive works inside that could be enjoyed without being an expert. The length of the exhibition was good also, there was lots to see without risking getting bored. I'd recommend this for people with an interest in art and... More

It is definitely better to buy tickets in advance. Very nice, smaller museum with a lot of interesting paintings and amazing cafe.

For years, I had wanted to visit this museum, and I was not disappointed when given the chance to visit it. The museum houses many of Van Gogh's classic paintings, which are richly contextualized by historical-biographical data about the artist, the time period, and locations in which he lived and produced his art. The building--currently under additional construction to ease... More

This is a museum I chose to see because it is compact and can be done in a morning or afternoon. Audio available. I am a huge art lover and being in Amsterdam and not doing at least one museum would have been a lifelong regret for me. I loved the size of this museum, being able to see only... More

You have to see the museum of one of the the Netherlands famous painters. While not all of his most famous works are not here, it is a well done museum that chronicles his life and has an impressive collections of his paintings and letters.
