This should be on your list of things to do in Amsterdam. Very enjoyable.

Allow enough time to relax and enjoy the artwork.

“Ten Years of History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Van Gogh only painted for ten years which I did not know. The first five years of his work was very dark depicting potato farmers. But then his creativity flourished into beautiful yellows, blues & greens. A must see:)

“If you like van Gogh, go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

This museum harbors an extensive collection of Van Gogh works, and if you have any interest in him, this museum is a must-see. The audioguide was also very helpful. The line to get in was extensive, but our hotel offered tickets for a one euro service charge, which was well worth it

“Exceptional”

Can't say enough about what you will see here. I love art and this museum is an art lovers dream. Always get the audio tour it adds a lot. Stop in the gift shop for terrific take-homes.

“The admission is high, the collection is limited.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

The admission is high, the collection is limited. If you're an art person who visits important museums around the world, (as are we) you will be disappointed.
