Top ways to experience Van Gogh Museum
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

    Wonderfully dedicated to Van Gogh
    At this point a reservation is almost a must. The special exhibit of Van Gogh at Anvers was excellent. the audio certainly added to the experience, and the last room, well, I don't want to spoil the information you will see and read...
    Thank you for your review. We're happy to hear you enjoyed learning about Vincent's life and work at our museum!

    Quick & Excellent Stop
    This museum is a terrific combination of his life & story and amazing art. It is extremely well organized to ensure you get to really experience and learn. The whole museum did not take us long, only a few hours, but is well worth the stop.
    Thank you for your review. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your visit with us!

    Must-See for Art Lovers
    Stunning museum with excellent exhibition spaces. Well laid out exhibitions that give context to Van Gogh and his contemporaries. You must book in advance to avoid disappointment. The only downside is that it tends to get very busy and a little crowded. Still worth braving the crowds to view the wonderful artworks.
    Thank you for your review. The Van Gogh Museum is very popular and many people visit us every day. Our busiest hours are between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM. You can choose the time of your visit when booking your tickets via our website.

    Best museum experience in Amsterdam.
    The Van Gogh museum has an absolutely stunning collection of Van Gogh’s work, as well as well as some by people who inspired him or whom he inspired. The best part of this experience was the audio guide which provided fascinating context to all of the art and, even more powerfully, gave a glimpse into Van Gogh’s interesting and tragic personal life. Definitely check out the temporary exhibit as well - the one on display in June 2023 was well worth the look.
    Thank you for your positive recommendation!

    Great for Van Gogh Fans
    Art museum experiences are largely about personal preferences. I spent 2 hours here and could have stayed longer because I enjoy Van Gogh and there is alot hear to see. Lots of signage on walls next to various paintings so audio tour not really required though probably adds to experience. They also offer some guided tours. I'd go again.
    Thank you for your elaborate and positive feedback, we hope to see you again sometime!

    Beautiful!
    As an art teacher, I was not going to leave Amsterdam without seeing Van Gogh's art work! Beautiful museum that showcases not only Van Gogh's work but the works of additional artists as well. The museum houses many of Van Gogh's most famous works, however, it does not include Starry Night - just an FYI. Still, there is definitely something for everyone! Make sure to check it out! Great place to visit!
    Thank you for your elaborate review. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your visit! The Starry Night was acquired by the MoMa in New York in 1941 and is still on view there.

    Ban Gogh museum, a must see when visiting Amsterdam. Get in early so you can enjoy at a nice pace. Time can fly past.
    A very nice venue that is easily accessed by public transport. Wonderful collection of paintings displays. Nice cafe too. I was surprised by how small the paintings were compared to some other artists displayed in the city. Can obviously be very busy. My advice is to go as earlyish as you can. My wife and I visited but for us 2 hours was not long enough to enjoy it fully. Good gift shop. Closes bit early. So could do with opening later a couple of days a week maybe till 8, as you can get in London. A must see for lovers of Van Gogh as it houses a huge collection.
    Thank you for your elaborate and positive feedback, we hope to welcome you again in the future!

    A must see place if you are in Amsterdam.
    Van Gogh art works are beautiful already, but visiting the museum helped my to understand how his life was influent all his works. It is a wonderful experience. There is one experience I would like share that you can not buy ticket at the museum. All tickets must be purchased online and in schedule. If you purchase online and do not receive digital ticket by email, and write a request for resend the ticket and do not get any response. Please do not panic. If your purchase goes through, all information are in their system. The most important thing is that screen shots all your purchase detail or print them out; keep all information of your purchase to show them at the time you schedule is, you will be fine to get in. That was my case and the employees there were very helpful.
    Thank you for your positive review! For urgent requests when it comes to your ticket purchase our customer care is also always available via phone.

    World class art museum!
    The new exhibit of Van High’s last 70 days was outstanding! We toured this museum for three hours when it first opened at 9 a.m. because it gets more crowded as the day goes on. The provided audio tour was outstanding. We got tickets and two months in advance and the museum was sold out on the day we visited.
    Thank you for your positive review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit at our museum.

Well worth the visit.
No need to be early for your time slot. They will not let you in until the clock outside shows your time. So many people waited in line only to be turned away to get back in line a short time later.
Make reservations weeks in advance of your visit.

The works of Van Gogh are incredible to see in person. This exhibit was stunning and I loved how much you could learn about his life while also enjoying the art. Very sad that is his most popular work, A Starry Night, is not featured at this exhibit. Still worth going, be sure to buy tickets in advance! It will book up quickly.

This is my favorite art museum as it is dedicated to my favorite artist. They did a fantastic job at progressing through Vincent's life, transitions, & struggles. Paintings of things he enjoyed and artists he admired was a surprising addition. To see so many paintings of such a great artist was a bucket list experience, even with the large crowds. The audio tour is a must as it expands on so many aspects of many of the paintings. It's really well done. Be sure and buy tickets in advance as they are usually sold out daily.

BOOK AHEAD! They have limited tickets available each day and it’s so appreciative when you get in to view the art! One has the space to really view the art and not fight the crowds! Beautifully set up, and of course the art is stunning! Lovely to have a glass of wine at the end of the exhibit!

The Van Gogh Museum is not just a place for exhibiting the paintings of the famous artist. It presents a full examination of his life and the development of his work. Not all his paintings are masterpieces. We learn how Van Gogh arrived at a certain point in his artistic development and eventually was a great influence to future generations of artists. Worth the experience which you won’t get in most art museums.

Although Starry Night is not here (it’s at the MOMA in NYC), seeing Sunflowers in person along with many other of Van Goghs famous works was a real treat. The museum was founded by Van Goghs nephew and tells the story of his life through much of his art. Worth the visit. Took us about Two hours.

Got a 9am entrance time and so glad. The crowds were very low and being the first to enter it seemed we had the place to ourselves for about 30 minutes. We could spend a good deal of time at each piece and exhibit and didn't feel rushed due to a crowd. When we left at about 10:15 it was way busier and harder to move around. Highly recommend the early entry.
The museum is beautiful and well thought out. I loved this experience.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Amsterdam. This is the largest collection of his paintings so the museum was able to tell a complete story of his life and career through his art. We were able to observe the paintings in amazing detail and very close, which allowed you to fully absorb the complexity of his techniques.

We did the audio tour and put it on self guided mode, which allows you to explore at your leisure as you walk through the collection. The audio clips were short yet impactful and enhanced the experience.

Although it was busy, I was pleased to see they limited the number of guests. This allowed you to get up close and view all details of his paintings. You didn’t feel rushed or pressured to leave an area if you wanted to observe more.

I’d definitely return to the museum regularly if I lived there.

My first ever visit to Amsterdam and my partner said this place was a must see. We arrived and decided to book straight away as we heard it gets very booked up. Thank goodness we did this as the only slot left was first thing in the morning on the day we were leaving! We arrived before the museum opened and queued to be let in. The audio tour is excellent and I recommend getting it. I thought it was well laid out. Top tip go for the earliest session if you can as it didn’t feel too over crowded and you could see everything easily without too many people, by the time we left it was heaving!

We went with a guide and a group of about 15 people. She was extremely well informed, thoughtful and tuned into our group. Van Gogh is a highly significant new style artist who evolved his own style.
