“An essential part of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This museum is a must-see for many reasons. First, the amazing privilege of seeing Van Gogh's work in person - no pictures truly do it justice! And also because there is a collection of works here by artists who were his contemporaries, and some who painted beside him! In addition, the museum always has other exhibitions of exciting and current art- Vincent would be proud!!

“Amazing Opportunity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

The Van Gogh museum is a beautiful facility showcasing worlds from many of Van Gogh's differing periods. Who knew he had a Japanese period? The is amazing - something special about seeing the actual brushstroke. Worth it.
