Although most of Van Gogh's most famous works are actually exibited in Peris this museum still manages to pull together a great chronological walkthrough of his artistic talent. Well worth a visit, bur don't expect all his most famous works in one place.

once inside the museum, it is well laid out, with plenty of help and a decent audio guide however, their policy of no photography is ridiculous, as most of the other museums i went into, allowed photography without flash the policy was more or less ignored by many people, which meant a constant drone of attendants telling people off for...

A must do when in Amsterdam. Pre booked tickets for early on a sunday morning. Thankfully the gallery spaces are pretty big to accommodate the number of visitors. An amazing collection of VVG works, great biographical and time line info, and a really good selection of works by influences and contemporaries. Do not miss.

Suggested to buy tickets from the tourism office or online beforehand as it would ace you lots of waiting time especially the waiting area was outdoor that you would feel chilly if rain. I love this museum not just because of its exhibits but more how it tells the story of Van Gogh and his bro and family, and how... More

I loved this museum. The best way to see Van Gogh's art work is listening to the audio guide. You pay a little extra but really makes the experience worthwhile. The museum is beautiful and the chronological order of his work allows the visitor to understand Van Gogh's method of painting and his psychological challenges.

This was great museum, laid out in the time line of Van Gogh's life so you can see the progression of his art. It also included a great collection of letters and correspondence to family and friends.

The museum is still owned by the Van Gogh family and is the premiere resource on Van Gogh's work and life. It's easy to move through and contains so many of his famous paintings. I would allow two hours for the visit. Highly recommend.

The museum has extensive collection of Van Gogh's art works from different periods of his life. We took our eight year old son and the museum size is perfect for his attention span.

We booked our tickets online in advance and were able to walk in and avoid the long queue. The museum is very thoughtful - it has sections dedicated to Van Gogh's letters, his influences, his own work and the work of artists he influenced. We did not buy an audio guide and I'm wishing we had. The Sunflowers are breathtaking... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
