a modern spacious museum, see Sunflowers , Almond Blossom , Irises and countless more pieces of his wok. Easy to get to. The museum has a sensible admission system with allocated entry times - this keeps the amount of people in the museum under control, so you can get up close to everything that you want to see. Fascinating to... More

I really liked the Van Gogh museum. There are a lot of beautiful paintings, letters and stories about Van Gogh. I love the painting "almond blossom" and it is fascinating to see a lot of the self portraids he made. A must see in Amsterdam. It is less big than the Rijksmuseum so if you don't have a lot of...

The exhibit is amazing. BUT prepare for a 1 hour queue if you have not book reserved tickets. Note that reserve tickets get sold out which was is what happened to us..so we had to wait in the hold. No heating provided by the staff.

This museum is a must if you visit Amsterdam. Very well organized. It takes you step by step throughout Van Gogh's life and art, from its early work to his final paintings. You can spend hours here and learn a lot from the artist, other artists who inspired his work, and his legacy. They have an adjacent building for temporal... More

The facility itself is very well laid out on three levels. There are two gift stores. Unless it is very familiar with Vincent's work I advise taking the guided tour. No cameras allowed... but practically that did not stop people with cell phones. (fact that I liked the least) The paintings are available for close-up views. (fact I liked the... More

Family of four (2 adult children) travelled to Amsterdam over Christmastime. Son is studying Art History in US, so we knew this was a must. The size of the building will not blow you away, but the works will. Very easy to navigate. We did not purchase additional charge headphones, as all of the art is well labeled and easy... More

This museum is awesome if you are interested in the life and works of Van Gogh. I myself get pretty "museum-ed out" quickly, but I would plan for at least an hour and a half there.

Take the multimedia guide - it is worth every cent and makes the museum visit so much more worthwhile. Also book online - MUCH easier than queuing.

It was good and was glad I went to see it. Its sort of a 'must do when is Amsterdam' but wouldn't go again...In saying that I would recommend it, but wouldn't be over-excited by it.

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
