This museum is housing amazing works of Van Gogh, Vermeer, Monet to name some.

This museum, like the Rembrandt’s House, has a self guided tour which I found very interesting especially going through Van Gogh’s artworks. The back story of his struggles with mental health and the famous ear incident.

The place has modern feel to it unlike Rijksmuseum, meaning no strong musky smell you smell from the older museums.

We've been to lots of Van Gogh exhibits but still learned a great deal from visiting this museum. Go early or buy your tickets online to avoid the lines. Allow a couple of hours to give yourself the chance to see it all.

A very good museum. Purchased tickets in advance to guarantee a slot so we could get in. Give yourself plenty of time to find the museum especially if you're walking from centraal station as it takes a good 30 minutes. We were late to the museum but they kindly give you 30 minutes extra incase you're late. The museum itself is very good, sadly no photos allowed (unless it's the big picture of Van Gogh) We would visit again.

excellent overview of Van Gogh 's work through his periods, normally i don't like to much the audio walks, but this one is really recommendable. What a luck the Van Gogh family sold it in the sixties to the VG stichting so that one can see al these masterpieces in one place

This museum is worth seeing any time you get a chance. But we were privileged to over lap, with a Friday night party, with Video DJ project and drinks, along with access to view of the master pieces of Van Gogh.
