  • Very interesting Museum, but only for Van Gogh lovers. Excellent bookshop. To see the regular exhibitions.

  • Totally enjoyed my day roaming around the museum, so worth the 17 euros, learned so much and was very impressed with how close you could get to the paintings. 
  • Museum easily accessible by tram 2 or 5. Ticket costs honest (17), good thing is that children under 18 years are free of charge. The works are within large halls to allow vision at all without disturbing each other. Only major flaw is the absence of "starry night" based in new York. Positive experience to do!!!

  • 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.
