If you only visit one museum in Amsterdam, it should be this one. Van Gogh, to me, is the epitome of Dutch art. He was a mentally tortured artist that painted due to compulsion rather than vocation and it shows in his art.

What a great way to spend an afternoon, or even a whole day. I was wishing we had gone earlier so that we could have spent more time here. But as we are a,ready planning a return visit, I will ensure I get more time here. Beautiful gifts in the shop too.

Lovely building! Very good and easy to follow historically. Hubby who isn't big on art got a bit bored though and the queues were ridiculous! Luckily our walking tour guide warned us of the issue and pre-sold us tickets (same price), which men't MUCH shorter wait to get in.

Using the audio guide, this tour gave us full insight into the progression of Vincent van Gogh's creative expression. Works are displayed from all stages of his artistic career and some of the real life items from which he painted is also on display. This comprehensive guide also explains Vincent's mental devolution. If you enjoy art this is a must... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our visit to this museum having heard about it for years from my mother. Loved the gift shop after also and was a great place for souvenirs and gifts for those back home. It's a don't miss in Amsterdam.

Printed images do not do justice to the textures and colors this great artist used - you have to see the real paintings to appreciate his mastery. Good to see the evolution of his work - and how one with seemingly little innate talent (as seen in early painting) focused, and worked hard to become a great artist. The late... More

My family and I had a great experience in this museum. We actually had a private tour with Sabry from the Thinking Museum group. The tour was well worth it. The museum is large and had 4 levels. We would have been wandering around the museum for hours listening to the audio guides. The tour with Sabre was about 90... More

In Netherlands the Van Gogh museum is a must visit . Book on line for your tickets and avoid standing in long queues. Do not take food in as bags are checked. There is a cafe and a Resturant in the building. Photography is prohibited in the galleries. Take a audiobook it costs five euro and worth it. Be prepared... More

I love Van Gogh, but this museum was a bit of a disappointment. The museum does do a good job taking you on a journey through the artist's life. But it was overcrowded and overpriced. Many of his most famous works (Starry Night, Irises, Cafe Terrace at Night) are housed in museums in other cities. Even if you prepurchase tickets,... More

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.
