Excellent museum. The world's richest collection of paintings of Vincent Van Gogh. It is recommended to buy tickets in advance online, so save yourself a lot of time.

Despite the entry is staggered (at hourly intervals), a lot of people accumulate inside the exhibition halls, and see the works becomes very tricky. In addition, are we sure that they are all original? At the Royal Palace, the most appreciated work is "The Night Watch" by Rembrandt, but the original representation is at The Louvre, Paris!

We visited the Van Gogh Museum almost as soon as they opened on the very first full day we were in Amsterdam. We had elected to purchase tickets on-line prior to leaving the state-It was a big plus. The museum is lovely. Well laid out and the information plentiful. We had planned on two hours and that worked out pretty... More

lots of history about biography and development of one of the most famous artists of the 19th century. although he has no connection to amsterdam, you'll find here the largest collection of his works, especially the mostly unknown younger works. so one can walk on the steps the artist did, with good explanations beneath. maybe they would have had a...

Make your reservation on line and just show up on time - no waiting. The audio tour made the experience excellent. I had never been a fan of Van Gogh but learned so much about his many period and found some from 1887 that I truly loved. The museum is well designed and didn't feel crowded even though there were...

It takes a little planning, but it is definitely worth it to get advanced tickets as this is a popular museum. We also opted for the audio tour, which offered a lot of insight into the life of the artist. It's not a large museum, but there is a lot to see that would be easily passed over without the... More
