“Good but Expected more...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

15 euros to see half an exhibition....pricey. Unfortunately several floors were closed and even though there is audio it would have been more interesting to have more information beside each painting. Display lacked impact, expected more of his well known Works but still worth the visit. The area for bags and coats was a disaster zone...that needs organised. Was impressed at the museum encouraging children and making it an adventure for them.

“Great day at Van Gogh!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Nice atmosphere - very comfortable. Disappointed that Sunflowers was loaned out and on tour - primary reason for my visit! :-(

“Good... but missing the key works!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

me and two friends spent a morning at this museum, as we read nearly everything! This museum is really good. I can't actually remember the price but I think it was worth it. There was lots of wonderful art with some pieces by other artists too, so great for any art lovers. We also got the audio guides which were on iPhone style things and had some interaction too. I think these were just 3euros or something so very worth it. The reason I have only given a 3 star is that some of the key works, such as the sunflowers, starry sky, the one with the chair (I don't know the actual names) were not there on this occasion and we were quite disappointed, especially as we weren't informed. Aside from that a great place.

“Pictures don't do it justice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

It wasn't a large exhibit but I could have easily spent a week looking at some of the pieces. I'm a little sad that time has taken it's toll on the artwork and would so very much like to see all of the works of art restored to their former glory.

“Van Gogh 101”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

Amazing pieces of art heritage, as well as forensic and reconstruction techniques are on display at the museum. Anyone who hasn't heard of Van Gogh could easily become a Van Gogh expert.
