“A Must in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is a must see in Amsterdam. It is adjacent to a beautiful park and about two blocks from the Rikes Muuseum. It has just been renovated and the job was well done. The art displays are very well done and you can get up close to the art work and take pictures. The only drawback is that there can be a long waiting line to get in. Tour buses pull up and unload people to get in line. The best time to go is in the morning when it opens.

“Must not skip this Museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The Van Gogh Museum was another highlight of our trip to Amsterdam. There are many floors that show and tell the life and works of Van Gogh. I learned much about his life, and work.

“Get tickets at your Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

By getting tickets at your hotel you bypass the lineups for tickets. Don't take a backpack. AND no camera flashes. I was very disappointed when there are clear signs saying no flash and still people took pictures using flash. Also there are some paintings you cannot photograph at all. And there are still some that can't read! In any of the languages!! Overall it is an impressive display if you like his work, the history of where he was at different times of his work and the building itself is very well laid out for the masses of people visiting. Also amazing gift shop. Take extra money!! Worth the visit.

“An Artist's Dream....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

A MUST SEE for anybody who loves art, especially the Van Gogh....the audio headphones are terrific and well worth it if you go on your own...nobody rushes you to move on, going early in the morning helps with any crowd or tour issues....spent 3 hours enjoying the paintings in the beautiful, new museum...and have a fabulous lunch in their delicious cafeteria...add the Kroeller Mueller Museum which we drove to near Arnhem...and you get to see many more Van Goghs...and please, learn how to say his near the Dutch way.....

“Van Gogh a day with a master!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

What a wonderful way to spend a blustery Feb winter day inside a warm museum entrenched in the works of Van Gogh! I enjoyed the walking tour with headphones.
