  • The museum will get busy so pre-book to avoid queues. It is also worth paying for the commentary as he muses does not just cover Van Gogh but also his contemporaries.

  • This is by far for me the most beautiful and interesting museum i have ever been in my life. Amazing design, top of the art paintings, polite personnel that lets you take pictures. Keep in mind that you have to book your visit in advance. Amazing experience! I definitely recommend this place while you visit Amsterdam.
  • Amazing experience. The tickets were a bit dear but overall it's worth the experience. The museum starts off with Van Gogh's initial days as an artist to his final days of struggle and chaos. You'll feel a bit connected to the artist himself throughout your museum tour (if you look closely) and the skill set that he showcased are all captured under one roof. Good stuff and make sure you take the media guide in your tour cos that can make such a huge difference.
