    Try not to step in line. Buy the tickets online to save at least an hour waiting in line, or just come early...

    One of the must see attraction in Amsterdam. Make sure to use the audio guide for a better understanding. You can see all the museum at a leisurely pace because it's not that big, 3 hours will suffice

    But once you leave your bag in cloak room, many people rushed into and hang over the night bar with live DJ music. So exposition hall is less terrible than other places.

    You may think it's a small museum for the building's size, but it's full of Van Gogh's paintings in several floors. Pure art! Buy online and escape the very slow line.

    Be ready to dodge the people with the electronic info devices. It is also a video viewer. So they watch the video while blocking your view of the displays.

    Here you see the paintings by Vincent Van Gogh, organised chronologically, and also his letters, painting instruments, short biography, and other related things. About two hours to visit. 15€.

    It's a great place to view many of Van Gogh's early works and the progression of his style over years. Unfortunately it doesn't have his most famous paintings like The Starry Night.

    Bit crowded but totally worth it to see VG's work close up. Some of his best work was done in last year of his life, so sad.

    A really good resume of Van Gogh. The only downside if we can define there's one: you can't take pictures, even without flash!
