The life and works of Van Gogh are presented in this modern gallery over 3 floors. Very interesting insight into Van Gough as a person and artist. Includes works from the artists who influenced Van Gough. Loved all of it.

We visited the museum at 10am with pre booked tickets. It became very busy and in some parts difficult to study the art work. But it was an enjoyable experience to see Van Gogh's work progress through out the exhibition. We recommend to go early.

The museum has the most extensive range of van Gogh works many of which were donated by his family. There are also works by some contemporaries. The museum tells van Gogh's life story.

Great place for art lovers. Good organization of paintings over the artist's life time with explanation of his life. Beware of the crowd. Gets over populated at times, spoiling the experience. Majority of visitors are there just to tick off the box of 'things to...More

The handsome van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam is a wonderfully designed, wholly intuitive space - a very rare building. Its internal structure 'leads' you chronologically through the life of the artist, even "pausing" - as he did his active career for a year - then...More

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping

We had booked online for a specific time. Otherwise the queues can be 2 hours long. I'm not sure about the Museumkaart.
Can you go into the museum shop without having to enter and pay admission price?

No, but you have big museum store right by VG museum. If you need to go in a NEMO museum shop (perfect for children gifts) you can go without ticket.
