Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam Reviews - Write a Review
Being as popular as it is, you should expect a long wait to get in and crowds throughout the museum. You can buy tickets online for a particular time slot and skip the line to buy tickets (which took us about an hour). The museum is beautiful and the audio guide is actually an interactive media guide on a tablet and is well done. The Dutch in Paris Exhibition was on display during our visit and we thoroughly enjoyed the collection and the story it told. The rest of the museum explored the life of Van Gogh including his acquaintances, friends, and family. It chronicles the growth of his artistic career and what influenced him. The staff are all friendly and welcoming.
This is a fantastic museum for Van Gogh admirers. In addition to the huge collection of his works there are many interesting details of his life, inspirations, and creative development. Only two minor complaints. First, Starry Night was on loan to another museum, which is understandable, but as a result it was as if the painting didn’t exist. No references to it in any of the materials there and no items in the gift shop featuring it. I was told this was due to licensing restrictions. Second, the gift shop can only be accessed by buying a museum ticket. We attended the museum but didn’t buy anything from the gift shop. We later decided that there was something we wanted, but couldn’t get back in. Most museums I’ve visited have a separate entrance for the gift shop.
Amazing museum I enjoyed it so much. The artwork is wonderful. Its worth it getting the extra multimedia tour for an extra 5 euros as it gives an interesting explanation for the art work. Its a good place to spend the day. The gift shop has lots to choose from. There is also a restaurant and cloakroom which is handy.
Reservations highly recommended. Very crowded. While there is a lot of space between paintings, getting close up views can take some patience. The audio tour is very good but keeps many patrons in front if pictures longer than most. It is problematic. The architecture is spacious and and doesn't detract from the visual pleasures of the art. Big souvenir store. This is one of the many treats if Amsterdam.
As international as the museum wants to be, it doesn't offer lockers or cloak service for visitors traveling with small briefcase with wheels. Therefore, cannot visit the museum! I am sure it is a beautiful museum with great collection. Maybe better luck next time when they have enough budget to offer this kind of service for visitors.
