    Van Gohg is really amazing!!! However, it's so annoying how easy to spoil the impression - the lights are horrible, some of paintings hard to see if u are not 2 meters tall

    Do buy online. The lines can be pretty long. Depending on the weather it might not be that fun standing outside.

    If you have a Museum Card, go straight to the group entrance and avoid the queues!

    No photos (at your own risk level with sunflower has a difficult short man in glasses). Museum shop not so cool... A bit tacky for gifts.

    A must see museum of Amsterdam! Free with the I AMsterdam card! Dont miss it!

    Your new queueing system is the worst. I hold a museumkaart and I've been queueing for over 30 minutes, what's then the benefit of having tickets or musumkaart in advance?

    An obvious choice. Get the museumkart if you're going to do more than 1 museum, it let's you skip the line.

    Excellent audio guides, but the museum's layout lacks any feeling of intimacy.

    A very large collection of Van Gogh's works, but even with a timed entry system there are far too many people inside at once. Go to Rijksmuseum or Rembrandt House museum instead.

    Get your tickets through website, loooong lines guaranteed otherwise. You also should select a certain time of your tour. That's how it works;)

    Been here 5+ times
    Go to the Gauguin exhibition and enjoy forgotten times. Even though it doesn't look groundbreaking, just go. Some important works are on display. Don't forget to touch the litho's!

    To the last place. the most obvious. It's mandatory to see how important van Gogh was to the world of painting.

    You can't pay with card in the cafe if the card was issued in Spain. And there's no ATM inside. This is really disturbing

    They don't tell you before you're actually inside that you have to check in your backpacks and umbrellas at a very long queue. Leave them at home to save time

    Not too bad but its not the full range of Van Gogh. Worth checking it out if you love art and have the time.
