  • Ah, how to talk about Van Gogh? It's a dream come true, so many Van Gogh works together, the audio guide telling the story of the works, highlighting the details that would pass unnoticed. I spent hours and already want to go back!

  • It was great to see so many of his works in one place along with some of the works of his contemporaries. Loads of information about him and his life as well. Very busy even on a cold snowy Saturday. ...  more »
  • An eye-catcher, it was once beautiful and with the multi media guide's best completed our knowledge. We can recommend this only further in the morning it is pleasant. We have bought many souvenirs, they are reasonably priced. Very recommendable...

  • The number of pieces that are on display is phenomenal and the flow of the entire exhibit hall is great. Since we were part of a tour group, we got to skip the big line and that was extremely nice too. The gift shop had some unique items, so you could find something for anyone on your shopping list.
  • Massive museum with a huge collection of van gogh's works and other famous artists as well. Incredible to see major art works up close. There's a story to listen to if you purchase headphones and such bit they're not included in the ticket price which is very expensive considering that fact. In a great location right next to the Rijksmuseum
  • It's the largest exhibit of Van Gogh's work in the world. The museum is divided in multiple floors where each one represent a period of his work. You're able to see how his style developed over the years and it's inspiring that despite voluntarily admitting himself to a mental hospital he was still able to paint as much as he did. Definitely worth a visit!
  • I love the museum. The building itself is a masterpiece of architecture. Apart from great work of Van Gogh you'll find there Daubing and Monet. Tickets are not cheap but if you like art this is a place you should visit. Of course there is a shop in the museum with very expensive copies of Van Gogh's work but they are made in China so I decided to have a coffee instead.
  • Brilliant place. The life achievements of a genius struck with illness very well portrayed. Sad that they don't allow taking pictures of the beautiful exhibits. Also, the museum shop was pretty under whelming. Shops at Louvre were much more attractive.
