We had to go through here more quickly than we wanted, due to time constraints with our trip, but it is such a nice museum. The paintings are amazing, of course, and if you can't make it to any other museums in Amsterdam, this is...More

This place should be on the list of "must to see in AMS" :-) Even I am not super fan of art, I really enjoyed and will visit again.

My husband and I visited on a weekend break. I had prebooked tickets and I was very happy. We were able to skip the general area and go into the pre-reserved area. This saved us approx 1-2 hours waiting to buy tickets. The art was...More

Worst queue ever and don't bother with the voucher system as the queue is as bad as without the vouchers and no better value. Information is terrible

It was just an ok experience. I enjoyed the building more than the paintings! I feel like they had to rummage through old cellars to find the best pieces of his art work and came back empty. There are more famous Van Gogh paintings outside...More

If you are really into Van Gogh you will like this. His most famous paintings are not here. Slight disappointment.

We were not expecting to learn so much about the "legends" of Van Gogh. A new exhibit about Van Gogh's last years has opened. It was very informative and enjoyable.

Enjoyed our visit to the museum very much. A must-do when visiting Amsterdam. It was popular/crowded, even on a Tuesday morning, so we were fortunate to have purchased advance tickets. Recommend the audio tour to get the full effect of the exhibits, especially the newer...More

I've never been super huge on paintings but after a visit to the Van Gogh Museum it really did open my eyes. Being able to get close enough to see brush strokes and technique as well as learning about it a little there as well...More

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

It's better to reserve always. On the web site you can find when there are time slot still available. And with this reservation, you can skip the cue

If I have a Museumkaart, will I need to stand in line? Do I need a timed entry ticket, too?

We had booked online for a specific time. Otherwise the queues can be 2 hours long. I'm not sure about the Museumkaart.
Can you go into the museum shop without having to enter and pay admission price?

No, but you have big museum store right by VG museum. If you need to go in a NEMO museum shop (perfect for children gifts) you can go without ticket.
