We had prebooked tickets which was a good idea. No queue and vey convenient. You may buy audio guide which is a must in order to get most out of the visit. We took the 45 minutes tour which we found convenient - here you get the highlights which gave us a good insight in his painting and life.

I know Van Gogh Museum it's a top in Amsterdam but I was expecting more for a place like this (maybe some more remarkable pictures).

It's definitely in the Amsterdam bucket list! Been a fan of Van Gogh ever since i started painting. A dream come true seeing his works. I love that they also showcase works of other artists in connection to the current exhibition. Bought my Van Gogh travel size watercolour palette there too. :)

I loved seeing this museum, it had everything! Van Gogh paintings were the majority, of course, but I really enjoyed seeing some of the artifacts/furniture and paintings from those who influenced Van Gogh as well. Well laid out floor plan and a fun visit. A must see!

We have been there for the first time and it was one of the best museum I have ever visited. The organisation is great and once you got there the time is flying. We had a fantastic time there. It definitely worth it.

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.
