This museum gave us insight into Van Gogh's life and friends. Wouldn't bother buying the audioguide on top of the already pricey tickets!! And it's definitely better to get there early before the tourist rush.

We visited the museum today. My advice is to pre-book online, through your hotel or tours and tickets shops to avoid queues, we pre-booked with our hotel and walked straight in but others were queueing for ages. We paid €17 euros and found it very underwhelming. It was also very busy and difficult to look at everything. We looked around... More

This museum is much more than just an exhibition of he's work. You learn a lot about his life all what is going around him. The variety and number of paintings allow you to understand his evolution.

Well worth it even if not a museum person. Allow 1.5 hours to go through with minimal crowds. Get tickets on line and get there when the doors open especially on a weekend. If you don't have a travel book that gives you the Van Gogh "story", use a headset. The painting descriptions are small print and gave me a... More

Fantastic museum but crowded. For fewer people, definitely buy tickets online in advance of your visit, and if possible go on a late Friday afternoon (the museum stays open until 10pm on Fridays). Definitely pay 5 Euros for the radio tour, it is easy to follow and informative without being overwhelming. I especially liked the radio tour because you could... More

Spent most of the day here. Disabled facilities are great but disappointed with the sensory section, it was very small in comparison to the rest of the place. It was extremely busy the day we visited and some areas were nigh on impossible to get a look at. The overall feeling of this museum is one of Beauty. It's got... More

Ticket queue and coat/bag check queues are very confusing. We arrived very early, so queue was short to buy tickets and get inside, but then coat/bag check was chaotic. Not really sure why it was so bad, people just seemed disorganised. Also had to queue for more than 20 minutes to buy some water at a concession stand inside. But... More

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.
