It is a beautiful museum, a journey to art which will make you want to paint as soon as you go out - even if you never did it before.

The exhibition was amazing. Love the diversity of paintings by Van Gogh and that other artists were included. Not a lot from the late years are there. We had the holland pass so we were able to stand in line 3 which moved a bit faster than lines 1&2. However those who booked entry times were definitely given the priority.

If you get tired of all the Heavy art like Rembrandt then go to van Gogh and experience his talent and colorful paintings.
