All paintings are organized in chronological order and illustrate different periods of Van Gogh's creative searches. This way of representation is very convenient to figure out the changes in colors and mood in his paintings. One of my favorite themes is Van Gogh's Japaneese period, which I was aware of, when I had visited this museum firstly. The family tree... More

One of the most beautiful museums in Amsterdam. You 'll find find out a lot about his life and work, there are many famous Vincent's paintings in the museum such as the sunflowers, the bedroom and his self-portraits. The ticket price is reasonable (around 15 euros, if I recall correctly). I recommend you to rent multimedia guide (around 5 euros).

Do not visit Amsterdam without visiting the Van Gogh Museum. The museum is smartly laid out. The display signs are in both Dutch and English (maybe another language - not sure) and are easy to read and understand. I would guess that about 70% of all of the famous van Gogh artwork you have seen over the years is contained... More

I absolutely loved this museum. I arrived around opening time and there was almost no queue at all (though by the time I left the queues were huge). There was a free cloakroom for leaving my coat and bag in. As you travel up through the floors it covers Van Gogh's art like a timeline of when he created it.... More

A feast for lovers of Van Gogh - the best collection of his work anywhere. Lots of history of his life and work and also on his friends and influences. Plenty to see and although it is busy, no problem getting time to see even the most well known works close up.

I always wanted to visit this museum, because van Gogh is my favourite painter and I wasn´t dissappointed. The museum is big and very informative. The labels are in English and Dutch and there is also a multilingual multimedia guide. Even the gift shop was nice with reasonable prices. I would recommend to buy the entrance tickets online, the queue... More

The layout of the museum is of 3 floors and the paintings are highlighted together with his life. One can feel the emotion of the artist when admiring his work. His technique is unique, the brush stroke and the ink.. The use of colour... It is the place to visit.

Have recently returned from a trip to Amsterdam and indeed the Museum. The Museum is placed to the south west of Amsterdam centre, approx ten minute tram ride from Central Station on tram number 2. The space is well layed out starting at the bottom of the building and working your way up through the three floors. As you can... More
