Very efficiently staffed and presented with much information about Van Gogh and his paintings. The only downside was the number of visitors taking photographs despite there being plenty of signs stating not to.

There was a fabulous Landscape exhibit that we visited before the Permanent collection and I'm glad we did it first. It was calm, we could savor and it was a special treat. The Permanent Collection is amazing and the layout is incredibly well done and explanatory. I suggest you go as early in the day as humanly possible before large... More

The exhibits are truly amazing, very much worth going to see, all of the most famous works of Van Gogh are exhibited plus other amazing paintings from the same era.

We visited this twenty years ago but the exhibition has changed significantly. You could easily spend all day here. Set aside a good two hours MINIMUM. Do not miss this.

Stuffed full of Van Gogh paintings and many other artists, the exhibits focus firmly on impressionism. If this period and style is to your liking, then you should definitely go, if not, it can be avoided without feeling like you missed out.

Although the art was not very ingesting to me - his story was. I was very surprised to know how much he suffered and how sad his life ended.

What a collection of Van Gogh's art and stories. I particularly liked how the museum was laid out to tell the story of his life with corresponding pieces of his work. A must see while in Amsterdam.

I love Van Gogh and his reproductions. This museum is in heart of Amsterdam. When you buy I Amsterdam city card you go quickly in line to pick up entrance ticket. Inside of museum you can buy lot of souvenirs. I enjoyed everything in this museum.

I know who Van Gogh was but really didn't know the history... Walking through this museum I found it really interesting the life of Van Gogh. Get your tickets in advance since it could sell out and/or the lines to get in.

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.
