  • Located in the "Nationale Park De Hoge Veluwe" a visit well worth the time. A fantastic "Van Gogh" collection and a beautiful garden with modern sculptures. It kept even our teenage son interested. At...  more »
  • Museum of art located in the Netherlands National Park about 1 hour drive from Amsterdam. As well as the world famous "drawbridge at Arles", "the night Café" collection of Gogh works is the centerpiece, but pretty amazing works of Impressionist and modern art and sculpture. Building modern and the staff of the cafe. The staff wasn't too crowded because it was winter.

  • No where in the world to see outdoor sculptures plus indoor paintings of Van Gogh. Truly an experience. You've got to be there to truly experience it.  more »
  • 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 :)
  • One of the finest Van Gogh collections in the world complemented by works by modern Dutch painters like Rietveld. Beautiful sculpture garden. Museum is located in a large nature area. Bicycles at the entrance are the recommended option for exploring the park.
  • Call me thick, but I never realized how many Van Goghs are in the collection of Helene Kröller-Müller. Her own life story is equally amazing. What an incredible woman!
  • This is a rating for the sculpture garden because we didn't even make it into the museum!! Loved walking around, especially through the back and up to the lookout, which is actually a part of the collection too. If you're willing to climb the stairs (not for those with vertigo) you get a great view of the park. The museum has free lockers, free use of toilets and lends out pushchairs. All good stuff ☺
  • Very nice but costly museum with a lot of Van Gogh art. Great location, worth a long walk or bike ride from the main gate. The restaurant is pricey though so better go down the road to the near Hotel/Restaurant/Cafe Sterenberg off site.
