We purchased advance tickets, but in common with all the other customers who had done so, either from a kiosk, agent or online, we still had to queue in the searing heat of the midday sun to exchange our tickets for some other tickets. I cannot see the relevance or value in causing this added inconvenience to visitors. Our irritation... More

Loved this gallery, very interesting to see the progression of Van Goghs work. The audio guide was really good and is interactive. Disappointed not to see Starry Night :-(

The queue for entry was long but we were able to pre-book tickets, which helped. Beautiful art by Van Gogh and his friends. Most galleries would not allow photographs. The museum shops had great items using his art.

This Museum really impressed me. Not only did they have hundreds of painting by Van Gogh, but a very detailed biography, all along the museum. The section on his mental illness was extremely interesting. I went to the museum as part of a tour through Viator, where I went through the canal first. Well worth it!

We loved this museum. The guide books will tell you to allow 2 hours, but my husband and I spent 5 hours viewing the incredible artwork included in this museum. It is beautifully laid out and displayed. I would recommend using one of the audio tour guides which adds extra depth and richness to the experience. Don't forget to enjoy... More

As a life long Van Gogh fan, going to this museum was a dream come true and it exceeded my expectations. Definitely buy your ticket online in advance or else you will be waiting in line for a long time. The museum was amazing. I was stunned by the sheer number of his work and items from his life, including... More

Recommend a Friday evening when there is a free lecture as well. Who can believe that this remarkable artist sold only one painting in his lifetime, yet painted 900 of them. Go see it!

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
