  • 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.

  • Located in beautiful Forrest in the Middle of the park it Is Like a dream come true for Van Gogh lovers. Must se the second largest Van Gogh Collection in the world.  more »
  • 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!

  • 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 ☺
  • Hidden gem of Netherlands! Enjoyed our trip to this museum. Worth driving out of Amsterdam to visit the place. It has a good collection of Van Goghs works here, made our trip memorable...a visit is highly recommended 😊
  • One of my favorite museums and in the beautiful fall weather, not only the amazing array of art is breathtaking but also the nature around it. Gorgeous.
  • Coming back here every few weeks. Fixed and temporary exhibits are really good. Van Gogh, Signac, Manet and many more are missed after leaving the museum :) I also enjoy the sculpture garden (forest tbh) stroll every season of the year.
  • The nature in the park is overwhelmingly beautiful! And the museum manages to surprise everytime. Good quality restaurant and, O wait, did I mention the excellent van Gogh collection which clearly shows the phases in the development of his unique style. There are some nice activities for kids too (treasure hunt).
