Van Gogh Muesum - lines?

Might choose to skip this attraction, therefore I do not plan on buying a ticket online in advance. Is there anywhere I can buy the ticket in Amsterdam to avoid the line? What are the ticket lines like at the Van Gogh Museum, I will be in Amsterdam in April.

The first time visiting Amsterdam, I was at a hotel a block away from that museum. Every morning and afternoon for a week I passed it en route to sightseeing or going back to the hotel. There was always a long line it seemed for ticket purchases. Based on a previous post, it doesn't sound like you're that excited about art museums, and that's OK. Don't go if you don't think you'll enjoy it to the max as you're only in town for short 3 days. When I finally went to visit the Van Gogh museum, I enjoyed it, but it was crowded and not as delightful as I thought. I had seen Van Gogh paintings in other museums. If I had to choose between it and the Rijksmuseum, I'd go with the latter. You'll get a better feeling for the Netherlands historically at the Rijks.

I'm not sure where exactly you can buy tickets. Your hotel might have them. The Hotel Fita, where I stayed, sold them, but not many other places do. You can always buy them online while you're there.

When we went to VG, there was a very long line for those with online tickets waiting for the 3 pm time.

No line for walk ups without tickets. So who knows what happens on a particular day.

Also found it odd that they still allow photography.

If you're going to be there the week between Easter and King's day I don't think you will want to go.
