  • Kröller Müller is a fine museum on a nice place. Exhibition of Hans Jean Arp is interesting and rewarding. One thing I must say about museums in Netherlands. Do something about hours of operation!!! Sculpture garden in the summer in the weekend close to half 5. Come on people. This keeps Netherlands idd a village. What is finer than is the eve by a beautiful garden walk. Or when it rains by a museum. Too bad that is not possible. At all because it is such an amazing place.

  • Kroller-Muller Museum seems to be a victim of it's own success. I visited in July 2008 to find a tranquil oasis of beautiful art that left me restored and rejuvenated. My visit this July was quite fra...  more »
  • Great venue with an enormous collection of even better paintings. Especially the Van Gogh's ones are amazing. And walking throught the sculpture park is fantastic!
  • Beautiful parklands with interesting sculptures. The art gallery had many Van Gogh painting there. The cafe was very disappointing with being so slow to serve a great deal of people.
  • Lovely gallery with much more than Van Gogh (impressionists, De Still, sculptures). - and in the magnificent setting if the Hoge Veluwe national park. A great day out!
  • I was lucky enough to be with a tour that received a private opening on a Monday, when the museum is normally closed. For some reason, we also used the "historic entrance", which our guide had never even used before. With over 100 people split into six groups, our guides were trying to herd us into different galleries so it wasn't too crowded. I was most excited about seeing my favorite painting ever, Van Gogh's "Cafe Terrace at Night". However, I was pleasantly surprised to see many paintings I recognized - and I'm definitely no art student. There were works by Picasso, Seurat, Monet, Cezanne, Renoir, and of course, lots of Van Goghs. The paintings are grouped chronologically which helps to understand how Van Gogh changed his style as he learned from others and moved to different locales. My only complaint was that I didn't get to stay longer! The museum is located within a national park and we saw two deer as we drove in. I didn't get to see the sculpture garden, though others said it was lovely. As a Floridian who is used to tourist traps, I appreciated that the gift shop charged fair prices.
  • Beautifully situated inside a nature park, the museum has a number of van Gogh exhibits as well as modernist and pointilist paintings. Indoor restaurant had good soup at 7€, bike tracks around well maintained - overall we spent around 7 hours in the park and museum and had a good time.
