Fantastic museum

Make sure you put aside at least 3 hours to take it all in properly. This is a large museum that deserves to be seen properly.

After having visited some museums in Spain, like Dali's or Picasso's museum, this one was a bit disappointing, especially considering the price...

We visited late on a Friday afternoon but as the gallery was open until 10pm we could take our time to enjoy the artwork and later there was music which added to the atmosphere.We spent about three hours looking round. I learnt so much more about Van Gogh and his paintings during my visit. The shop has some excellent souvenirs... More

The museum gives you an idea of who Van Gogh was and how he and his contemporaries changes the art world. A must for anyone who appreciates art. Book tickets online to avoid the queues and go early in the morning and not at weekend as it can be very busy.

Been here more then once, and it is one of my favorite museums. It is fascinating to be able to see the largest collection of van Gogh's works in one place. The route through the museum takes you through his various life and work-stages and is very informative in a pleasant way. But even if you'd only pay attention to... More

If you have a love of art, Vincent Van Gogh himself, or just want to get some cultural experience then this is certainly the place for you! However, I did find some parts boring and expensive to get in as well as in the shop inside. I think it ultimately depends on if you have a love for art.

Great museum that shows Van Gogh's own work alongside work from artists that influenced his style. We knew a bit about the painter before going but learnt loads from this exhibition. Well worth the time queuing and the money spent.

Modern building telling the story of how of van Gogh became a painter. It's his story from beginning to end along with exhibits of his work. Very interesting, even though I'm not particularly interested in his paintings. While we're there we were lucky enough to catch the exhibition by Edvard Munch too. The queues are long, so prebook or go... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
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 destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
