Love his work! Four floors of just Van Gogh. What a treat! Saw paintings I have not seen before. Give yourself plenty of time to slowly see each floor.

This museum is amazing and will give you a greater understanding of Van Gogh's life and process as an artist. There are so many of his works on display plus information about the letters written between him and his brother Theo. I wish they would have an exhibit all about Theo too since he was Vincent's main supporter. The tour... More

Well kept and structured, it really inspired me to get to know more about this (flawed) genius and his art. Good sections explaining painting techniques used. I went straight on the internet as I left to learn more- can't really ask for any more than this from a museum!

Prior to this visit I really didn't know or care much about Van Gogh. However, the museum really brings him to life and provides a great deal of informative and interesting material about his life, paintings, personal difficulties and development as an artist. I strongly recommend a visit--one of the best art museums I've ever visited. Note: Buy your tickets... More

this museum is breath taking, if you appreciate Van Gogh, imagine 3 floors of his works ( with addition of other artists). It was absolutely mesmerizing

which is somthing I havent thought of before coming to see the Sunflowers. The museum is really big so unless you are planning on coming straight to the famouse Sunflowers painting, be prepared to spend between 2-3 hours in the museum. Although it is packed by people, VAn Gogh is a must see in Amsterdam. I recomend you to buy... More

This was just awesome! I really enjoyed this museum because it took you through the history of van gogh and there were some art that are not as popular but you can definitely see van gogh's awesome talent.

With a Museum Card, this is a good stop for a couple of hours. Our group of 2 adults and 3 teens went Friday night, when there is a DJ and music playing. Unfortunately, some of Van Gogh's most important works are housed in Paris so this is a decent but not complete retrospective. Buy the Museum Card for entrance... More

This is one of the best museums in the world! The crowds move smoothly throughout the museum so you are able to get close and read the information easily. If you are a Van Gogh friend, you will truly appreciate his work. If you are new to Van Gogh, I think you will enjoy and appreciate this museum.
