But know that it is not a "greatest hits" collection--plenty of his best work here, especially self-portraits, and a lot of it, but don't expect most of his most famous. Rather, the greatest value is in less seen works--and how all of the related material (photos, written words, more) flesh out his life and ideas and illness.

The paintings inside are good enough to earn 5 stars for this place. I am not a painting expert, thus will not talk about the paintings despite I find them absolutely amazing. But I think this is one of the best museums I have ever visited. It has a great atmosphere. It is designed so well that you can't miss... More

Along with the Rijksmuseum, the collection of the Van Gogh museum adjacent is a "must visit" definitely with an audio guide, preferably an art historian

Book a ticket on line before you attend this wonderful museum, on busy days the entrance waiting time is more than 1 hour! To view and read the pieces may take over 2 hours depending on visitor numbers but well worth the time. Very interesting exhibition and an in depth look at the life and times of Van Goch, superbly...

The exhibition On The Verge Of Insanity is simply brilliant! It traces the progression of his insanity through artifacts, letters, and of course his works. Not to be missed!

This museum is devoted exclusively to Van Gogh (and a few friends and influences). It is the largest collection on Van Gogh paintings in the world. Simply beautiful :) Plus, the museum is designed nicely and it was a pleasure to visit.

This is a great museum learning the life of Van Gogh and a chance to see some of his most famous works along with letters he wrote.

They should make the print by the paintings much bigger - they have the space to do that. You cannot read it easily with all the people in front of you. Poorly planned. Also they should put arrows in the stairs,so,that people stay to,the right going up or down. We did not have reservations and only waited 30 minutes which... 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.
