A sure do not miss attraction. Be sure to buy your tickets is advance on line and bring printout. Could save you a very long weight time. It is well arranged and very beautiful. Van Gogh's painting and drawings are amazing. I a lot of new information.

You have to go, but actually there are not that many of his really famous masterpieces in this museum. So it was something of a disappointment.

Great museum and a very manageable size. We read that they were open late on Friday nights so we went and there were absolutely no lines. There was also music and a wine bar which was a nice touch. We enjoyed the art work and our 2 boys, aged 12 and 14 did not get too overwhelmed with the size... More

Definitely a good idea to book your ticket ahead of time on the website to avoid the really LONG cue! The museum gives a great overview of the cronological development of van Gogh's work.

Gives you a very good idea of his, too short life, and his wonderful work. Recommend to use the audioguide.

We had a great time at the museum and even our young children enjoyed it. Few things to remember. 1. you must book tickets online/ advance purchase as the lines are horrendous. the advantage of online booking is that you are not restricted to a date, as long as you know you are going to go you will be fine....

This museum provides a comprehensive overview of the life and works of Vincent van Gogh. He was only active as an artist for 10 years, yet produced some of the most beautiful and famous paintings of all time. About 200 of his 800 paintings are in this museum, along with drawings and letters. There are some works by other artists,... More

The facility is nice and well maintained. My husband and I didn't realize that the art was displayed chronologically (starting on the ground floor and moving up), so we did the museum backwards... not that big of a deal. I'm not a huge art lover, and none of the pieces I would know were there. I did like that they... More
