Excellent layout and plenty of space to look at the exhibits. The audio guide was helpful although selecting the numbers was at times a bit awkward. You do see the famous Sunflowers. It does get more crowded during the middle of the day so check out the website for busy times.

Great museum with an impressive collection of self-portraits. The Japanese part of the collection and influence is something I've taken away. Lucky enough to be visit when an additional exhibition was on display.

The flow is poorly organized, with displays on both walls of a narrow space it gets uncomfortably close trying to move. Also, the no photography policy is sad. Evry one of his paintings in on the internet already, why not allow people to capture the memory in photos. Rijksmuseum is amazing and they allow photography of some the most awesome... More

We visited Van Gogh Museum during our stay in Amsterdam. Seeing Van Gogh's works up close was very interesting. I was amazed by his work and. It is sad he committed suicide and never lived to see his work real value.

One of the very great museums of Amsterdam. It's all about Vincent. If you are a fan, DO visit! Winter time you can get in easily, no lines. Spring, Summer and Fall it can get unbelievably busy. Reserve or buy tickets ahead of time is the best you can do. If you forgot to buy ahead, ask your hotel concierge,... More

I have studied and practiced fine art for almost my entire life, so the Van Gogh Museum was an obvious stop for me. I highly recommend the multilingual audio guide for only a few extra euros, especially if you are solo, as it gives in depth information not only about the paintings themselves, but also about the circumstances under which...

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.
