We purchased tickets to this museum online a few hours prior to our visit. If you plan to go to this museum, I would highly recommend buying tickets ahead of time, as we did; upon our arrival we saw a rather long line of people waiting outside to purchase tickets. Once inside, we picked up our audio guides, and off... More

I don't like Gogh at all and it was a bit much, but it was a kewl museum and I learned some stuff and it's even funner after you visit a cafe.

Been there last year, with friends The square is very nice during sunny day as there is nice bar for a nice beer under the sun. Museum is nice but the only problem is that we went without booking so we had to wait in line for almost 2 hours to get tickets. So make sure if you are visiting... More

I found this a bit tedious as it was (naturally) focused on one painter. Nice building but not cheap. We've since learned that the audio guides are well worth going for.

Coming from a person who is not very well versed in art it was an interesting and educational tour, and made me appreciate the artist and work more than when I walked

Awesome Museum but I must say it'll take you more than 2 hours to go round if you want to read every little paragraph below each picture, went at 3 and the place shuts at 5 and we had to rush at half 4 and was only on floor 1, but great souvenir shop wish I got more lol, great... More

A beautiful museum. We purchased the audio tour and we're glad we did as it gave us much insight into Vincent Van Gogh's character and the progression of his work. It was a very enjoyable afternoon!

Try to get tickets ahead of time and go as early in the day as you can. I learned so much about Van Gogh as an artist and his turbulent personal/family life. The recordings (not his actual voice) of the letters he wrote to his family are very moving--set aside some time to listen to them. And the gift shop... More

This is an absolute must while staying in Amsterdam. Can be busy on weekends but the artwork on offer makes it worth the wait whatever the day of the week.

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.
