“Fantastic insight into the life of Vincent Van Gogh”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

The Van Gogh Museum is not the largest but there are some absolutely stunning paintings located within. The museum does a fantastic job of telling the fascinating story of Van Gogh. It's just a shame they are missing some of the more famous Van Gogh paintings.

This should be on your list of things to do in Amsterdam. Very enjoyable.

Allow enough time to relax and enjoy the artwork.

“Ten Years of History”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Van Gogh only painted for ten years which I did not know. The first five years of his work was very dark depicting potato farmers. But then his creativity flourished into beautiful yellows, blues & greens. A must see:)

“If you like van Gogh, go”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

This museum harbors an extensive collection of Van Gogh works, and if you have any interest in him, this museum is a must-see. The audioguide was also very helpful. The line to get in was extensive, but our hotel offered tickets for a one euro service charge, which was well worth it

Can't say enough about what you will see here. I love art and this museum is an art lovers dream. Always get the audio tour it adds a lot. Stop in the gift shop for terrific take-homes.
