How could anyone come to Amsterdam and not visit the Van Gogh Museum!!! We went in May (of 2013) for the Tulips also and we did not encounter any lines! Go planning to just meander and enjoy!

Liked the way they presented his work and how the multimedia (headphone) tour linked his work chronologically with Van Gogh's personal life.

We went to the Van Gogh museum with our kids and we all loved it. There is a self guided tour for kids and a different one for adults. In fact the kids one runs like a scavenger hunt across the paintings. The museum is very well designed and the paintings are spectacular. Definitely a must see art museum in... More

Already reviewed this Museum previously but just had to go again. It's such a nice collection and perfectly presented. I would recommend getting a time-slot to enter on-line beforehand as to avoid the long lines so there will be more time inside!

Excellent display of his works with information on the progression of his style and career. Learned a lot about him as a painter. Very crowded on the day we visited, a Friday.

Love his art so this museum has been a real pleasure to visit. I did not have to wait a lot to enter, which is a plus, and the fee was okay for the overall experience.

Amazing collection of Van Gogh paintings and paintings from those who influenced his work. Upstairs is some fascinating work done to preserve the pictures and a bit on how Van Gogh painted them. The queues can be enormous and even the 'priority' queue took us 20 mins to get in, so my advice is to buy the 'timed' ticket, turn... More

My hubby bought TIMED tickets online before our arrival. We we arrived at the museum there were 3 lines. One line was for timed tickets. One was for people who had tickets. One was for people needing to buy tickets. The timed ticket line had 3 people in it waiting for their time. All other lines were monstrously long. There... More

Go there on Friday night because that is the Jazz night which they have DJ and bar, and the ambience is just great. Agree with some reviewers that the museum is great with kids and the staff are very helpful and friendly to my daughter. They gave her a treasure hunting game and this encouraged her to go through all... More

We bought open tickets from our hotel. They are the same price as normal admission but you go in a smaller queue . We still waited for 30 mins but it was much quicker than the normal admission queue so worth doing. I was not that fussed about going but I'm glad I did. The way the paintings are displayed,... More
