Van Gogh Museum reviews
The audio tour is a must if you’re interested in knowing about his life more. The exhibit could’ve been better tbh, but I most definitely enjoyed it. more »
These museum is a must see, if you love the paintings of Van Gogh. Although this museum is fantastic, the collection of the Kroller Muller museum 100 km from Amsterdam has even a better Van Gogh... more »
Beautiful museum with the most important paintings from Van Gogh. I Really enjoyed my visit. I also liked the history and storyline of each painting making it understandable for less knowledgeable... more »
Excellent museum to enjoy some of his best pictures and the pictures of related artists. Excellent to spend there the day and let you mind blows. I would recommend to booked in advance, so you can do everything much faster. A good point? The cloakroom is completely free 😍
If you like Van Gogh I would highly recommend visiting this museum! The museum is organized in a way to slowly introduce you to Vincent's artistic career and life. It highlights his contribution and collaborations with other artists of the time. The featured exhibit was incredible as well. It featured artist self-portraits - a wonderful experience which I enjoyed as much as the main collection. I highly recommend ordering your tickets online and in advance. Include a multimedia device for the best experience! The museum took us about 4 hours to walk through fully.
The art is breathtaking so do go, explore all floors, and visit the gift shop. You can check-in your coat and big bags for free in the wardrobe. The restrooms are behind the gift shop, very clean. Every floor is accessible by elevator. It was slightly confusing whether photography is allowed or not. Naturally, no flash. However, some security personnel said no pictures at all (so no cell phone camera either) and others said just no flash and no big cameras. I saw many people using their cell phones though. There are two places to get some items: top and ground floor. The top floor is more quiet, smaller, but a good selection. There is a cafetaria inside the museum as well. Highly recommended!
Well organized and clear description! The places for self exploring are really wonderful. The only pity is that the museum is more and more commercial. No any pictures is allowed, why?! Too many commercial products for sale:-( While the exhibition “Exhibition Jean-François Millet: Sowing the Seeds of Modern Art” was really great! Thanks for such high quality exhibition.
I'm giving it a lower rating because this museum is very small and INCREDIBLY crowded compared to other museums in Amsterdam. The art is amazing, but given the number of people crowded around every painting, its quite hard to enjoy. Unlike most other museums, going early doesn't mean less people. I asked a staff on the way out if it was always this busy, and they explained it was actually quiet that day. I honestly can't imagine what it would be like on a busy day.
