    Wonderful, well-organized collection of works by Van Gogh and information about his short career as an artist. The info really helped me understand him and his art better. I highly recommend it!

    Get the audio guide and book a time in advance; this is one of my favorite museums because it takes you through the evolution of Van Gogh's life as painter rather than individual, unrelated paintings

    Worth the admission fee. Check out the special exhibits upstairs

    An e-ticket bought on the museum's website👆 allows fast-lane entrance, but only at specified available time and date (usually next day). Better get this one or queue for 2 hrs with any other ticket🙈

    Van Gogh's life and paintings in one place (I mean those that aren't in other museums). Loved it, do not miss it when you are in Amsterdam. Buy tickets online.

    This place is incredible! A must if you travel alone or with the family! Vincent is a truly master! The way he expressed himself through painting is remarkable!

    It's open until 10:00PM on Friday but gift shop is open until 9:30PM. You cannot take any photos in the museum, which is fine. The Armin Van Buren guide is interesting, try it!

    Anyone who doesn't know much about art should visit this place, you'll appreciate some of these pieces of art. The free wifi is an added bonus. Also the souvenir store ships world wide

    Don't forget to order your tickets online, so you don't have to queue! And take a look at the temporary exhibition. It's often very nice too

    Had to queue for 2 hrs with a ticket purchased online at the Canal Tour company's site 😁 along with all other ticket holders just to realize that the ticket on iPad won't be accepted, need print out!

    This museum houses the world’s largest Van Gogh art collection. A must see when you visit Amsterdam. I personally like his way of painting landscapes.

    Really well laid out exhibit, really glad I didn't miss this one. The line for tickets is long, but if you have the museum pass I think you can skip it.

    May you be a fan of Van Gogh or not this place is brilliant! It's not only about Van Gogh himself but it also gives you context of the era he lived and created in

    It has only one of the top 5 van Gogh paintings. Worth to see but you should not have great expectations.

    Cool to see how his style evolved and changed. Go at night on a Friday around 8pm to get in and see the three floors of stuff expect a 10-20 min wait.

    If you've never seen his work in person, you MUST go. The heavy layers of paint make the whole piece. Grab an audio guide, and go at your own pace.

    Wonderful exhibition of Bincent's life and art. But many of the masters followers' art are displayed as well, so you better read the boards.

    By purchasing your ticket online you can choose the hour you want to come. There is a special line for scheduled tickets and the line is virtually none.

    Book in advance online as this is often sold out. Be sure to also get the audio. It's definitely worth it and only €3.50.

    Smart traveller, it's better to buy tickets online on a web-sitebefore the visit - when you come you will stay in a shorter line. If you haven't prepaid tickets just come up earlier... at 9:30 ;)

    A museum that tells a story of Van Gogh's life through his letters, very nicely organised. The Starry Night is lacking, of course, but there's more to Vincent than that.

    Lots of van Gogh's and his contemporaries painting, including some of most famous ones. Tells the story beyond paintings - also his life. Avoid long queues with a Museum card.

    And to the last place I leave the most obvious. It's mandatory to see how important van Gogh was to the world of painting. All his great artworks are displayed here.

    Buy timed tickets, even pre purchased tickets line is quite long. Don't even think about linking up for tickets at the door, unless you have lots of time to stand around!

    The artwork is, of course, magnificent... but expect a ton of visitors, and difficulty having the space to truly appreciate the art.

    Visit on a Friday night, when closing time is extended to 10p.m., live piano music is played in the lobby, and champagne is served. Read more

    Worth to visit, even when you don't know much about paintings. A lot of modern and scientific tools to explain about Van Gogh and you can try it

    While the multimedia tour is highly rated, be brave and listen to your own soundtrack. Highly recommend sad, slow Radiohead for the top floor.

    The reason this museum is one of the best in the world is because it's not only about the art. It's about the man behind the art.

    Just amazing. One advice: pick the audio guide. There is a lot of particular facts in the Vincents life that will worth listen.

    Great way to get informed about Van Gogh's phases as a painter. I recommend the audio guide
