“Unbelievable collection and setting”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

This is a full sensory experience! To start, the location is incredible. Situated within a national park, there are trails to explore the forest and dunes by using one of the free bicycles that are available at each entry. The sculpture garden is a beautiful combination of works in controlled setting and some nestled into their natural environment - east to walk, and a surprise around each corner. The collection inside is unbelievable - the number and quality of pieces collected by this couple is staggering. I won't do it justice in attempting to describe, so please go to their website. It was a wonderful day excursion into the countryside and a nice break to the explorations of Amsterdam.

“Great Museum , both inside and out!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Back in 2008 we took a wonderful day trip down here to get out of Amsterdam for a day. While getting to and fro was not easy due to an unexpected transportation strike we had a wonderful day and will be returning this summer with my grown children. We reached the museum by taking the white bicycles that are free at each of the three park entrances and it only took us about 30 mins to get there . Because the sculpture gardens are so lovely try to visit when the weather is pleasant enough to spend time outside. The collection of Van Goghs here is truly amazing , supposedly the second largest collection ? And of course there are many other artists represented here also. The best for us was the time spent outside in the gardens. We were too late for the tulips BUT we were there at peak time for the rhododendrons and walked between towering hedges of them ! This was a wonderful place to visit and truly interesting styles of art everywhere. Make the trip , one will not regret it !!

“Wonderful museum, great sculpture garden”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

This couple collected art, mostly Van Gogh's it seems. A great exhibit of several I had never seen plus an interesting history of history of the collection, when the paintings were purchased and what was paid. The outdoor sculpture garden looked fantastic unfortunately we only had about half an hour to roam. Be sure to check this place out. Fascinating.

“A must-do for those who love Van Gogh's work”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

If you love Van Gogh's art, you have to visit this museum. No, it is not particularly easy to get to, but it can be done more easily than you think. Rent a car for the day in Amsterdam, it's a simple drive to get there and back, makes a lovely day trip. We put off visiting for years, hoping to find a simpler way (train/bus?), before biting the bullet. On a pretty day you can ride a bike from the park entrance to the museum, or just drive there if biking doesn't suit. The museum's collection of VG art is second only to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, and many of their pieces are of the more unusual sort. The also said they loan out pieces frequently, so what's on display changes several times a year...will have to visit again perhaps to see what we missed.

“Kroller-Muller Museum”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

This museum has an excellent collection of Van Gogh paintings and sketches -particularly those from his time in Arles.

I did find it to be a fine museum.

but i did find it rather annoying that the museum is around 7 miles into the park. If my friend had not have been driving in the first place, we wouldn't have seen the magnificent park and the art at all. cost at least 15 euro. Very expensive and hard to get to. Staff rush you out the door, before its even 5....it closes to early.

The collection should be on display in Amsterdam, for tourists and a venue which is easy to reach....9 out of 10 people i talk to about this museum, have never even heard of its existence.
