Impossible not to visit this World famous Museum. It is huge more than you could expect. 3 levels with the life and work of this notorious artist. You can visit at night time which is more relaxing with a glass of wine which you are allowed on the first floor. Easily 2 hours inside, great ambience and fantastically designed.

I am not painting lover and this place is just too famous and if you come to Amsterdam the first time you probably should go visit there too even thought you are not painting lover. I arrived there in the morning around 11:00am and I brought already tickets from the hotel as it is cheaper and can avoid queue up.

With so many Van Gogh paintings in one place we almost had a sensory overload. Fortunately, the guide provided an intelligent context for this wealth of artistry. We spent a couple of hours in the museum and although the admission prices were quite steep, it was well worth a visit as we booked online and avoided some of the queues.

Don't think it will be over in an hour! The place is so capturing and It will take you 2-3 hours at least to finish it. Prior reservation and a multimedia guide are strongly advisable

We bought our tickets in our hostel and we got to skip the longs queues when we arrived. You have to leave your jackets/bags to a cloakroom which had very long queues and took a long time to put them in and retrieve them. The paintings are well laid out to periods of time. Map could have been more clearer... More

My love for van gogh meant that this experience was very insightful and awe-inspiring. However it would not be suitable for those who aren't fans.

Fantastic and interactive museum - even if art and museums are not a personal flavor I suggest giving it a try, this master really deserves it! - Personally I love art in all its forms so this was really a treat for myself. Go, open your mind, and learn !

The museum is located in the museum quarter and easy to get to by tram/bus. The main block is spread over 4 floors and follows Van Gogh's life. A fantastic array of paintings and drawings really bring the story to life. It gets busy book online to beat the queue

It was great to see so many Van Gogh paintings in one place including the sunflowers, irises and a variety of self portraits and landscapes. The information provided alongside the work was informative, providing a context for individual pieces and showing how a number of artists around at the same time influenced each other. We spent about 2 hours in... 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.
