On my first trip to Amsterdam in 2012, the museum was unfortunately closed for renovation and only about half of the exhibits were on display at another local museum. I had to travel back to Amsterdam in December 2014 to see the entire collection on display…….the privilege of experiencing the spectacular array of Vincent’s works was very well worth the... More

Buying tickets on line saved us at least 15 minutes in line. The museum was modern and interesting even for someone who ins't passionate about art. The audio tour, which cost 5 Euro per person, was well worth the pocket change and was informative and effectively helped pull the massive collection into a concise story that was memorable.

Sure you've seen classic Van Gogh self-portraits but here you will see a gallery full of self-portraits painted over the years and highlighting his journey as an artist. You'll be surprised to see Van Gogh with his fellow artists and be able to compare how each borrowed ideas and techniques from others and finally you'll be surprised that Van Gogh... More

Hopped around museums. One of the museums not to be missed. Great collections of Van Gogh works and to know more about his life.

One of the top attractions in Amsterdam, I really enjoyed this museum! Be sure to be there early (I recommend a short time before the doors open), if you don't want to spend half a day in line. Tip: either buy the tickets online or purchase the I am Amsterdam card, so that you can profit from a faster line.

Only here, I suspect, can you view the development of van Gogh's superb painting. Well worth a visit.

Great museum. Better than expected with insight into the man and his influences. I went an hour before closing which meant no lines and not too busy inside - I recommend this option. The audio tour is worth getting to hear interesting information.

Van Gogh and Amsterdam. Being the national pride of the Netherlands, Van Gogh Museum is a must see in Amsterdam. All his most famous painting you can see there.
