  • Museum "interesting", but outrageously expensive. 17 euros per people without audioguide (€ 5 more...) Van Gogh is an artist that I like a lot, but the Museum not do it homage. Museum not interactive at all, no information available if you want to learn more, but above all, the visit is very fast and is marred by everyone in the Museum. We only stayed for 40 minutes (the Museum is not so great finally) I do not advise this Museum, it's a much better elsewhere!

  • One of the paragraphs of the programme of visiting Amsterdam was the van Gogh Museum. Impressed! The logic of placing paintings, modern way of presenting the information about the author and his works, his contemporaries, of the era. The Museum is open until 22.00 on Friday-so as soon as we arrived, gladly took the opportunity to visit the Museum. The people at this time is not very much, therefore, examined the exposure with special care))

  • Such a gem especially since it exhibits most of the famous and know paintings of the great painter. We traveled close to this museum by a city bus and got dropped by the Rijksmuseum. And walked for ab...  more »

  • 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.
