  • We arrived for the 2 pm tour block, we purchased tickets online so we did not have to wait in the queue once we showed up. I really like the way they separate the floors into different phases of his life, it was pretty fascinating seeing not only his paintings but also his letters sent to his brother, his pencils, charcoals, paints and paint palette. The crowd was pretty big by the time we reached the top floor, by that time the kids were ready to leave and we were getting hungry. I would like to go back again without our kids and during a slower time block. One niece things for the kids was that they provide an activity sheet for them to fill out using clues and questions about the works of art.
  • Beautiful and magnificent museum! First advice, buy your tickets online. It's a waste of time to stand in line for tickets. If you forget this, don't worry. You still can buy tickets while standing in line! The paintings by Van Gogh are magnificent. Take your time at the museum, there is a lot to see. Even if it's busy, it doesn't feel overcrowded. Enjoy your visit :-)
  • An amazing experience. He was such a genius and that shows in his works. The broad brush strokes add a lovely texture to the paintings. My favorite was the part where you observe the painting under the microscope & see gravels of sand.
  • Buy your tickets online if you wanna save time! Audio tour had some really cool insight. Loved that they had so many letters available to read or listen too. Great insight on his opinions. Showing work from other artists inspired by or working with Van Gogh was a nice touch too!
  • Amazing portrait of the life and work of a genius. Van Gogh is always portrait as a troubled man unable to sell any pictures in his life time. But behind that simplistic fact you understand how ahead he was on his practice and what a loving relationship he had with his close brother who was also his bigger fan and encourage to keep working on his art
