“Amazing Opportunity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

The Van Gogh museum is a beautiful facility showcasing worlds from many of Van Gogh's differing periods. Who knew he had a Japanese period? The is amazing - something special about seeing the actual brushstroke. Worth it.

“Great to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Crowded, naturally, but is organized well with English explanations. If you have any interest in Van Gogh, you will be amazed at his many, many works over his life.

“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.
