    Great selection of Van Gogh's great works. But if you want to see Starry Night, go to NY! Also, don't get caught taking pictures of the paintings! Nasty female guard on 1.

    Van Gogh had an interesting life story -- decided to become a painter at 27, dead by 37 -- and this museum does a wonderful job showing his life and art side by side.

    One of the best museum layout concepts I've ever seen. The museum was already going to be good, but the layout really seals it

    The renovations are nice, although the non-museum guidebooks (which we relied on) make it difficult to go through easily. Go later in the evening to avoid the crowds, no advance tickets needed.

    Try to get your tickets in advance. Just showing up and buying tickets there will almost always be a delay.

    Museum closes at 6pm. If you show up late in the day there are less people. Guy was a nutbag, but SO talented! #inspire #passion

    Buy a 'museumjaarkaart' at another museum for 50 euro's and pass the queues. And besides you will have access to almost all Dutch musea for FREE!

    On the third floor, tucked away in a corner, is the book shop. Up the back is a table where you can sit down and read Vincent's prolific set of letters.

    The starry night painting is NOT here. It has been in the permanent collection of the MoMA in New York since 1941. You can buy Van Gogh's jelly ears at the gift shop.

    The temporary exhibition "when I give I give myself" makes it even more interesting. Take the audio guide and expect to wander around for at least 2-3 hours.

    Book tickets online! Good museum for Van Gogh lovers. Don't waste your time if you know nothing about him. There are nearly no prominent works and photography is forbidden

    1. Line to get your ticket, EVEN IF YOU GOT THEM IN ADVANCE!!!! 2. Small line to enter the building. 3. Long line to drop off your backpack. 4. Same line to pick up your backpack. Needs efficiency.
