    The Museum is disappointing and not up to its tariff. Our family of 5 people paid 80 euros. You have to pay the entrance to the Park, pay the parking for the car and of course the entrance to the Museum. With ultimately little work on VG.

    The Kröller Müller Museum is located in a national park. Access in the Park is paid (€ 6 for the car + € 18.50 per adult for the Museum). The building is well integrated in the landscape. It takes a few hours on-site so the collection is impressive inside the Museum in the Park which is filled with sculptures. Even though the Park is beautiful and some very interesting sculptures, this is not what I liked the most. The collection inside is super interesting. The Van Gogh collection is beautiful, obviously not worth the Amsterdam Museum, but it's rare to see so many works at the same time. There are works from his beginnings to those made just before his death. The rest of the Museum is also interesting with a nice historical progression, a fine collection of impressionists and pointillistes. Short for everyone. Audioguide € 2.5 and more that I highly recommend. Twenty work are presented. The explanations are clear and exciting. You will pass the site (between the Museum, the Museum Park and the national park a great day). You can also Park your car outside the site and take a free bike to reach the Museum. We did not because of the rain but the ballad in the Woods caught us and if I go back I'll get a bike. Good visit!

    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.
