Everything I thought it would be. I loved this Museums setup and that each floor was broken down based on his life and work of Art

Here you can learn about the sad life of Vincent Van Gogh. How thrilling to see his paintings in his own vvountry. Great gift store.

This museum and Van Gogh's fame exist as a result of his family being his champion. Throughout the museum the audio tour talks of his life, his influences, his family, and his works. At times I thought it was telling me too much about how...More

A beautifully presented and extensive collection telling the story about Vincent van Gogh. Not being a particular lover of the man's paintings, I found it all too much but I appreciate I am in the minority. Only complaints beyond that were too many stairs (but...More

Clearly a very popular Amsterdam destination but only a 20 minute queue mid morning. As well as showing many of Van Gogh's great works the museum tells a very interesting and moving story about his life and career. Impressive building. Friendly staff. Excellent visitor experience...More

I'm not really into Van Gogh but I have to admit the curators have done a brilliant job here in creating an experience that re-writes the traditional 'tortured genius' narratives about him. Instead, yes he suffered horribly, but you get a sense of an incredible,...More

Worth a good look around. Leave yourself at least 2 hours to have a look. If you use the headset it gives lots of information. Just keep an eye out for the numbers on the paintings. Unfortunately starry sky is not here, it is displayed...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

It really depends on how much information you want to have about each painting. My advice is hear the intro and then move on. IMHO there's only one floor that'll take your time, but you shouldn't have to spend more than... More

I am not sure about not getting in at all. I recommend buying timed ticket in advance even 1 week for sure. You by pass any queue of any sort. Also, the queue is outside so October may be cold and wet. The Van Gogh museum... More
