  • Great Museum in the middle of a huge park. An exceptional collection of impressionist painters including some very famous works. Van Gogh is put at the honor. We made the choice to take the bicycles made available to walk through the Park to the Museum. Very pleasant and original concept

  • Unfortunately we had too little time to visit the Kröller-Müller really well but we did get a good impression of the collection. Not all pieces were interesting for us but not everyone his or her taste is the same. Tip: If you come by car parking than your car outside the park and walk the 2.5 km to the museum and enjoy the outdoor air (or take a white bicycle).

  • Natural park around, very nice. In general they don´t have amazing paint pieces, but the art outside is the best one. Actually some pieces inside are very kitsch. But I really enjoyed the tour. The cafeteria is very complete, they have everything.
  • Always a pleasure to visit the museum and the park. Cause I never can remember which entrance of the park is shorter to bike... i always seem to end up biking too much. The bikes are always fine in my opinion so no sweat. The museum and park with statues is of such high quality I always wonder how they keep up the good work. A real top of the bill art experience and I do visit it every year at least once cause I like the style, the experience and even the cafe/food
  • Absolutely worth the trip! We went on a rainy Monday and felt like we had the place to ourselves. Some amazing artworks from some of my favourites, with a huge and cleverly hung collection of Van Gogh. Excellent sculpture garden too. Great little gift shop, quiet cafe and free lockers. Just do it!! We took the train from Amsterdam and two buses. It was really easy and the driver of the second bus even waited for us to buy our tickets at the gate and then continued through to drop us at the closest entrance :)
  • Such a fantastic array of paintings and outdoor and indoor sculptures. Many famous Van Gogh paintings are here too, alongside some others. Overall a great place visit.
  • A beautiful museum in an even more beautiful nature reserve in the Netherlands (De Hoge Veluwe). Van Gogh and the sculpture garden are, of course, world-famous, however the regular temporary exhibitions are of equal high-quality without exception.
