Well worth a visit

get here early to avoid the queues. Buy the guide and leave at least 2hours to see it all. Good range on view and well laid out.

The gallery itself is well organized and contains some beautiful pieces. However, I would expect no less from a gallery that charges 17 euros, students included . It is a shame that art is not more accesible, there must be a museum chair somewhere making bank. Sorry van Gogh.

We went here about a half hour before opening without a timed ticket, but had our Holland Pass, so we waited in the yellow line. To say the process was chaotic is an understatement. It seemed like the staff was overwhelmed. In any case we got in eventually... and that's where the five stars come in. Van Gogh's life was... More

We booked a tour and it was worth it as guide was very knowledgable and made the visit a truly learning experience.

This was a very interesting experience seeing paintings I have looked at in books. The museum was big, light and airy and not overcrowded as limited numbers were allowed in at one time. We bought tickets beforehand and I would definitely recommend this as it meant we didn't have to queue. Very good value for money. My only disappointment was... More

Get a ticket on line, in advance, and avoid some of the lines. I went at 9 a.m. opening and the museum was uncrowded and easy to navigate. Lovely paintings, of course, and interesting to watch Van Gogh's progression through his style. Don't take your camera -- no pictures allowed. And you might want to get the audio guide, available...

It's not just about his art; it's about his life. The influences, the inspirations, the style changes, the ups and the downs. Very informative. But also very crowded - be prepared for the masses. Tip: Although some tour books say there is mandatory handbag check, that wasn't the case when we visited. They are emphatic about the "no photos" rule... More

Being English, I am not used to paying firmly for special exhibitions. I am also used to displays that have more consistency than the era in which they were produced. My advice is to go straight to the 2nd floor, look at the Night Watch and its neighbours (just as good) and leave. I get Standahl's illness after 20mins in... More

I have been interested in art for years and knew some Van Gogh history before entering the museum. Seeing the paintings that I studied and reading the accommodating narratives that the museum provides made the experience surreal and unforgettable. The exhibitions takes you on a journey from his self portraits, artistic periods and to the work of his dear friends.... More
