You get to know the most famous pieces from this amazing artist and about his life. My favorites are The Bedroom and the one he painted upon his nephew's birth. To avoid long lines, book tickets online or try the Iamsterdam card with is really cost effective if you are planning to visit other museums and take a boat tour.

Many beautiful paintings which are truly remarkable when seeing them up close. You'll need 3+ hours if doing the audio tour, we just went our own pace as didn't have time. Some interesting artifacts on display as well, a must see for any Van Gogh lover, €15 entry fee, expect big cues without a que jump pre paid ticket

We were let right in with our advance tickets. We paid the 5 Euros each for the headset tour and spent about 1-1/2 hours learning a lot about Van Gogh. Loved it!

We enjoyed the museum and it did a great job taking you through Van Goghs life and art. Got timed tickets for this museum and glad we did. Line to buy tickets was quite long and line of ticket holders long as well. We simply walked right in at the time our tickets stated. Get them through the website. Worth... More

I loved this museum! There are so many amazing works on display. You also get a sense for what his life was like and some history about Van Gogh. Get there early to avoid long lines. (Arriving prior to 9am when they open allowed for us to get right in. When we walked by later, around 11:30am the lines were... More

Van Gogh was a very talented artist. He painted so many amazing pieces and so many are housed in Amsterdam's Van Gogh museum. You can rent a head set in any language and have a personal tour on your own time. Three floors of art. This man never put down his brush!

We came to Amsterdam for a long weekend so naturally had to see some sights, this was one of them. Very well laid out and very informative of the life of Vincent. It shows his progression as an artist from early on to his 'last' work as well as influences on his life. I'm very glad we visited and well... More
