Gorgeous museum- purchase tickets in advance, cue into your time slot, pack your patience ;) long cues to see many of the works. Quite interesting though.

The best art museum in Europe I've seen so far.. Audio guide is a must if you want to understand the complexity of Van Gogh and his work.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Van Gogh Museum and thought that it was well worth the money. I was surprised by how many Van Gogh paintings were in this one museum along with other artists who he befriended and collaborated...More

The museum itself illustrates the development in van Gogh's art very well. It also includes a lot of fellow artists' works to underline van Gogh's history. However, waiting for 3 hours in the cold is not really worth it. Especially since there is a huge...More

Great museum, definitely a Must See! But what a terrible queue for tourists! Be prepared and buy your ticket online so that you can walk on straight through the entrance of the 'old' building. Another benefit is the non-existing queue for the wardrobe there. Apart...More

By all means, order your ticket in advance otherwise be prepared for up to 3 hr. wait. A wonderful experience.

Renovated with new temporary exhibition section it is a wonderful museum. Pictures are not allowed - perhaps to allow enjoying the paintings. I have seen better Van Goghs elsewhere.

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 really depends on how much information you want to have about each painting. My advice is hear the intro and then move on. IMHO there's only one floor that'll take your time, but you shouldn't have to spend more than... More
