“Wonderful collection of pictures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

It will soon be back in its proper home but even at The Hermitage this was a great exhibition. It did get a bit crowded so early in the morning is best. Good souvenirs too.

“Van Gough On the Move is about to end”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Van Gough Museum is in the Hermitage while it was under renovation. It will move back to its original position on 1st of May. I have always been facinated by the exceptional use of colour by Van Gogh which seem to be incompatible with one another but Vincent put them in and blend together to impose a mood. The Van Gough on the Move was said to be only a third of the original collection. I will really like to have a second visit when the new Van Gough Museum opens. The queue is very long. Do go there eary in the morning. Also get the Holland Pass or the I Amsterdam card. Holders line up in a different queue which is much shorter.

“My favourite artist of all time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

The museum was actually shut for refurbishment when we were there so they had a special exhibition of his works in the Hermitage. Beautiful building showing Van Gogh's works. With audio explaining his life. very moving and touching. such a sad life and such an inspiring artist. Easy to get to as most places are in Amsterdam. Even if Van Gogh is not being exhibited one should visit the Hermitage. stunning museum.

“Perfect”

what can you say Van Gogh in all his glory. Buy your ticket from an information centre to escape the queues :)
