  • This museum was the first museum we tried to visit upon our arrival. I was exhausted, and I was disappointed that I couldn't enjoy it more. I must go back.

  • Wonderful museum. Vincent was an excellent painter who is immortal. And if you like art, this is Alpha and Omega art. I recommend setting aside at least 4 hours for the museum tour, but it is not a problem to spend the whole day here. Nice souvenirs cannot be missed. Clean toilets and free changing rooms. Admission is higher but adequate. My only complaint is that I can better mark the entrance to the museum. I recommend ordering the ticket online in advance. I recommend everything great .
  • Enjoyable but very busy. Buy your tickets online well prior to your visit. We had tickets for 9 but due to train delays we didn't get there until 9:10 and there was a line, so make sure you arrive early. Audio guides are really good.
  • Amazing story of this well known artist. The story is told well showing his influences and journey to becoming the inspiration of so many others. Good audio tour available in many languages. A bit busy so time it right if you are worried
  • This was a very good museum. I enjoyed the audio media which accompanied the tour. It was very informative and interactive, much better than just reading a plaque on the wall. A fine collection of Van Gogh and other artists with a timeline of his life. I left with a larger appreciation of his life and impact as an artist.
  • I didn't know I needed a reservation, but the park where the art museum is located and the art building were wonderful. If you love painting, wouldn't it be a place where the artist's name alone excites you? Next time I visit Amsterdam, I will definitely make a reservation here.
