  • Magnificent Museum. A must in Europa.No is very big which is not overwhelming. It is advisable to go early since it is then very busy.

  • a good overview of his work, the audio guide is indispensable for those who can't read English fluently

  • One of the best museums I visited in my life. The route, the way in which exposed works, architecture... Best to rent an audio guide and pay attention to the history of each work and his life itself with respect to his family and friends, and with itself; incredible. I have learned many things in this Museum and discovered others. No doubt I'll be back.

  • An amazing Museum, which hosts many works of the famous painter. Even if it was quite crowded, even at an early time on a weekday, you were able to comfortably see every painting. Even without the multimedia guide it was very interesting. The Shop hosts a collection of crazy Van Gogh Merchandise. Worth a visit!
  • Fantastic! You can enjoy a lot of paintings of Van Gogh, and learn more about his life. Sadly, his best work, The Starry Night, isn't there. The queue is long, so I advice you to buy the ticket online, which they'll allow you to the priority queue.
  • Would recommend buying tickets in advance as the lines can be extremely long, but absolutely worth the visit! Some of Van Gogh's best works are featured. The building is beautiful and incredible modern and despite the lines, it wasn't overcrowded so the experience was not diminished. Would highly recommend.
  • An Amsterdam must to-do, I didn't wait too long (40 minutes) even if I didn't book online tickets. I visited it without the audio guide but there are a lot of captions so it's easy to follow even for kids. It is not too big and there are rest benches in almost every room of the museum.
  • Probably the best museum dedicated to Van Gogh, however many of Van Gogh's famous works are not exhibited in this museum but spread around museums worldwide. This museum is more dedicated to Van Gogh's personal life than his masterpieces. Very unfortunate that photos are not allowed in the galleries. If you are looking for "The Starry Night", it is only display in Moma New York.
