I had a studied a little about Van Gogh at secondary school, but really only knew about his later projects. There were a vast amount of painting on display from throughout his life, as well as painting by artists that inspired Van Gogh. Also on display were items such as his art supplies and letters and art instalments from modern... More

If you are an art lover then this is a must see museum. They have most if not all of Van Gogh's pieces on display and so much background too. No pictures allowed in most of the museum. : )

If you want to see pictures of Vincent Van Gogh up close that you probably not see anywhere in the U.S. you need to stop here if in Amsterdam. There are four floors of his art along with artist he was friends with as well as influenced him. In addition you learn about the history of the man. Be sure... More

Great museum but awful rufe staff member, we got into the museum and proceeded to the multimedia counter. We are foreigners and english is our second language so my father told the staff working there(male, shaved/bald head with colored eyes, didnt get to see his name) that he wanted a "mobile" instead of saying audio guide, which the staff member...

A fantastic experience and a well organised museum with so much valuable information and insight. This was a highlight of our trip. We had booked online and were so glad that we had our e-ticket. The queues were so long but we walked past everyone. The fast lane does work. The e-ticket at the Van Gogh does lock you into... More

If you are a Van Gogh lover, better get your tickets online with a reserved time. Otherwise you will stand in a huge line! With a reservation, you can skip the lines and save hours.

Despite my limited experience and knowledge of art, I know that Van Gogh is one of my favourite artists due to the brightness and variety of his works. So if you like Van Gogh you will like this museum. Definitely book ahead to skip the queues. Great value and a humbling experience.

Nicely planned museum and great context for the Van Gough painting in their collection. During high season I recommend getting there about 35-40 min before your reserved ticket time. the lines for City passes etc, pre-purchased timed tickets were tremendous! If the shop is crowded you can buy things on line or in two other shops that have the exact... 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.
