Of course, I pretty enjoyed when I attended the museum. As Vincent Van Gogh is my role model while I was in high school which is the time I kept painting. The collections are awesome and the routes, organization in the museum are great, which can let us understanding Van Gogh from the beginning of his painting career to the end. Also we can know about how he painted and who influenced him at different stages. The last things I really surprised was the event holding at the top floor, which asked you to draw the outline(try to copy how Vincent drew). Not everyone did it, but I think it was a great chance to know how great he was, how marvelous works he made.
We bought our tickets online from the museum before our trip. It was our first day - arriving in Amsterdam without sleep at 8:00 this morning. We arrived for our scheduled 4:00 PM time slot at the museum and were quickly ushered inside. The museum is beautifully laid out - starting at the lower floor and working our way up to the third floor. Each floor covers a time period of Van Gogh‘s life. Each area has the history written out on display to cover each section - beautifully done. A lovely first day in Amsterdam.
A very nice museum, we enjoyed it a lot. Ticket reservation can only be made online these days, which prevents long lines at the museum entrance (I was there 5 years ago and we didn't enter because of the lines, and the last time we bought the tickets online, there was no line whatsoever, and everything went quickly and smoothly). Everything is wheelchair and stroller-accessible, too.
The Van Gogh Museum was one of my favorite things to visit in Amsterdam. I would recommend getting the I Amsterdam City Card, which gives you access to the other museums in the area, then you can make a day of just museums. You can explore several floors of Van Gogh’s works and his personal letters. The museum is well laid out and the wait is not long. Be sure to schedule a day and time online well in advance of your visit.
Beautiful new museum and the artwork is interesting and well laid out so that you can navigate around the space easily. I would recommend booking in advance as sometimes it’s hard to get tickets if they are sold out. The gift shop is also worth a look
