  • Once again, my family questioned the effort it took to get to a remote museum (from Amsterdam, a train, 2 buses, and a 2-km bike ride). That was until we walked into the first gallery--then silence, a...  more »
  • We were on a Saturday in the Museum. In order to save some money, we have used the parking lot Otterlo and paid €3.30 for parking. Parking in the Park, directly in front of the Museum is €6,60 more expensive. Admission is not cheap with €18,60 also, because you together to buy the Museum and the entrance to the Park, - there is not a single ticket for the Museum. If you park in Otterlo, you can either go to the Museum (2. 3km) walk or take one of the free white bicycles. The path to the Museum is paved and good to go. The walk to the Museum is a trail, he is sandy, covered with leaves and partly muddy and crosses slippery roots. Shoes with good soles are recommended and probably not suitable for prams. The museum itself is smaller than we had expected. There is a free cloakroom left from the entrance. Then it goes through 8 small spaces. Everything is well numbered and labeled. "The young van Gogh' as a special exhibition was for us. It was interesting and we liked. The cafeteria / restaurant in the Museum is good but priced more in the top segment. We have paid just over €12 for 2 wame drinks and 2 pieces of cake. You can go in the sculpture garden of the Museum. Which is spread out and we looked at everything. The "french hill path" he liked us, because something bergiger (Dutch standards :-)) is and passes (unfortunately closed) a really ingenious, steep stairs and other steel large sculptures.)

  • As well as family as with guests from abroad as with school we are in this museum. The collection continues every time an experience. Van Gogh but also by other interesting painters there are pieces. In addition to the paintings abstract art. That can captivate us less but the whole remains very nice with small variations in the collection per visit.

  • Museum in the nature. Take a bile at the entrance and enjoy the 10' ride to the museum. The park is really nice. I did not find the inside of the museum really nice. I would not plan on eating at the cafetaria as well. But the outside is worth it!
  • Nice setup with a museum in a park so you have to pay for both to see the museum. Children are free of charge - but your car is not. But possible to lend a free bike and there are lots of them. Splendid way to get around a see it all. Do expect to use time to get around - the park is huge. The Van Gogh expo is nice - good collection. The game for kids is very good - other museums could learn something from that. And the sculpture park is great on a beautiful day. Do expect to spend at least 4 hours there if you want to see everything! Friendly staff.
  • The park is beautiful itself, but the museum is perfect for every art-lover. They have one of the biggest Van Gogh collection and other modern artists works.
  • In 1969 the hippies in Amsterdam invented the white bicycle: a bicycle that was free to use, to promote a healthier lifestyle. Here there are thousand of white (free) bicycles to ride to the museum through a natural park. In the museum many paintings by van Gogh, but also an impressive collection of early 20th century paintings. In the garden quite a few large modern sculptures, absolutely worth seeing.
  • Great to just bike around the huge perimeter! Artwork portfolio is quite big and of high quality as well. Has a bunch of Van Goghs!
