First of all, yes, I am spoiled. I've seen a lot of Van Gogh and certainly all of his most famous paintings in public collections. That's why this collection felt so flat to me! We had already been to the Van Gogh Museum during this vacation so the Kröller-Müller definitely suffered in comparison. I especially hated how the works were... More

A magnificent place. The museum that has Van Gogh, Seurat and many other artists is in the middle of a huge park in which one can bicycle. Outside the museum many works are found as well. Very difficult to reach from Amsterdam. One must take the train to Utrecht-Ene and then bus 108 to Otterlo and then bus 106 to... More

Again a magnificent collection and as an add-on Seurat and other well known painters expressing themselves in pointillism method. Jan Toorop, Van Gogh all experimented with this. Very worthwhile 1 to 2 hours. One point which should be looked into: all afternoon the queue in front of the restaurant stayed way beyond what one should expect, 40 - 50 people.

The national park setting, the sculpture garden, the simple yet stylish architecture... all invite one to this gem of an art museum. And then there's the art itself. What a wonderful gem of a museum, based on one woman's astounding art collection!

The shipping magnate and wife, Kroller-Muller, gave their extensive art collection and the park, Hoge Veluwe, to the state in the 1930s when their business ran into difficulties. The result is an enormous art collection, paintings and sculptures, open to the public. The collection is housed in a purpose-built building (reminiscent of an English comprehensive school) within the park. To... More

Wow! Just when you thought the collection couldn't get any better you turn a corner and find another outstanding Van Gogh/Picasso/Mondrian. Amazing collection and not a dud in there. Well worth a visit. Make sure you leave time for a leisurely wander around the scultpture garden. The Jardin d'email is particularly good fun.

Went as a family and had an incredible time. The amazing museum sits at the center of the park. As others have stated, the museum's collection of Van Gogh's is exquisite and it's other works are fantastic too. But what this so special (and perfectly Dutch) were the free bicycle positioned at all the entrances to the park. Literally hundreds... More

Beautiful collection of Van Gogh paintings in a timeless museum located in NP De Hoge Veluwe in the centre of Holland. In the garden you'll find an international collection of sculptures. When visiting the Netherlands there are at least three museums you must visit: Rijksmuseum , Kroller-Muller and the Van Gogh Museum.

Great museum to visit. A lot to see, especially the Van Gogh paintings. Expensive with tickets to the park.
