Make sure you buy a ticket in advance to avoid the long lines. What more is there to say about Van Gogh? A museum filled with his work and his story. My second trip and I was amazed both times

Loved the entire museum! It's easier to buy your tickets at the Riyksmuseum rather than at Van Gogh. You can get both at the same time and beat the long lines.

Allow a few hours and wear good shoes! Excellent museum. Be sure to buy a timed ticket in advance so you don't have to wait in a huge, long line!

If you don't go to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam then you are ridiculous and should reconsider you life options. He's bomb, the museum is sick, and the guided tour is perfect. Do yourself a favor and book tickets ahead of time.
