  • Well curated museum depicting Van Gogh's life in chronology. I wished there was more audio guides in the paintings but I still enjoyed my time. Would definitely visit again.

  • This is by far for me the most beautiful and interesting museum i have ever been in my life. Amazing design, top of the art paintings, polite personnel that lets you take pictures. Keep in mind that you have to book your visit in advance. Amazing experience! I definitely recommend this place while you visit Amsterdam.
  • Absolutely stunning collection, beautifully displayed and a very informative audio guide. You really feel like walking across Van Gogh's life. There was a queue even though we had booked out tickets online before hand but it was moving relatively quick. Buy your tickets in advance because it's almost always sold out!
