Less crowded time to visit Van Gogh Museum / Rijksmuseum

Early in the morning, afternoon or no such thing as less crowded. We planned to visit in early August.

Avoid Wednesdays. School excursions can be on any given day but Wednesdays are the most common choice for schools.

“When going to the Rijksmuseum we went around 1 pm in the afternoon and there was basically no line.”

1 PM is just about one of the busiest times in the museum.

If you want to enjoy the museum in some peace and quiet, you should make sure you are there right when it opens with a pre-bought e-ticket in hand. Go up to the Gallery of Honours as soon as you enter, so you can enjoy the Vermeers and Rembrandts by yourself.

Don't tell them that, TG, I like the place to myself in the mornings!

I went to Rijksmuseum on a whim last Thursday afternoon. There was no line whatsoever. I went to Van Gogh on Saturday morning and it was fine. I did have pre-purchased tickets for VG.
