Van Gogh experience?

My daughter is a huge Van Gogh fan and has been wanting to come to Amsterdam for a while. Other than the museum, are there things to do in Amsterdam, or nearby, related to Van Gogh that anyone could recommend. Is the Kröller-Müller Museum worth a trip? I only know about it because she asked if I new where the painting " Cafe Terrace at Night" was located, and I found it there. Are there any English language classes, lectures or workshops that we might enjoy on a 4 day trip? Thanks for any tips or advice.

I actually prefer the Van Goghs at the Kröller-Müller. Well worth the trip, IMO.

If she likes "Cafe Terrace at Night", you should definitely try to go to Arles, France. Arles is very nice and lots of Van Gogh history in the area.

Arles +1 - The cafe still looks the same. Also, there's a walking tour you can do on your own by downloading a map on line. The sanatorium where he painted such masterpieces as Starry Night (closer to St. Remy):
