  • Been here before and before and before...I can't miss it every time I came in Amsterdam...well organized and beautifully maintained  more »
  • The versatility of the Van Gogh Museum is apparent from the most recent exhibition on prints and posters in Paris around 1900. Both the artistic as the advertising prints are discussed in detail. There are folders and books, there is sheet music. Beautifully designed exhibition. Famous images (black cat, Moulin rouge). Extensive explanations in English and Dutch (why not in French?). Informative and beautiful.

  • You can not visit Amsterdam without visiting this wonderful collection! In addition to his paintings, there are also the letters he wrote to his brother and friends who provide more intimate details of Van Gogh. I recommend the audioguide which is also in Spanish.

  • 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.
