Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam Reviews
If you're a fan of Van Gogh you simply MUST visit here. It was amazing to see his work in person, definitely worth the entry fee. They have free cloakroom too. The (free) dreams exhibition I didn't find in keeping with the artists style but it was good to learn more about him. Main downside is how busy it gets (i went on a Friday evening), but that's understandable.
The best museums is a museum with focus. This museum does a great job focusing on one artist and his influences. As you ascend the stories of this museum you will move chronologically through his life till you eventually end at his death on the top story. By doing so not only do we see his progress as an artist we also walk in his footsteps through the eventful journey his life took. Definitely worth the visit.
I love Van Gogh and I never been so fascinated. One of the best experience of my life. You can see in the paintings which way he move the paintbrush... simply fascinating ! I booked my ticket online and was not necessary to wait. There are 2 entrances, one for online tickets one for buying there, the line was 10-15 meter long. If you want to visit, buy a online ticket. Enjoy the unique experience.
I spend 6 hours here as the work is just amazing! I really enjoyed the museum as it does an amazing job in telling the story of Van Gogh - his art, thoughts and life. I found learning art in this way much more inspiring than just seeing a lot of paintings at a national museum or so. You do not have to be an art lover to be able to enjoy this museum. Facilities-wise, make sure to book your tickets in advance (yes, everyone in that long queue have a ticket). They have a free cloakroom and amazing toilet facilities, as well as a good souvenir shop (on two floors). (They also have a restaurant which I have not tried.) You will be guided by an audio guide which have different plans ready for you depending on the time you have. The museum could be packed at times, especially around the famous pieces of Van Gogh.
It was great to visit the Van Gogh Museum. It was like a dream come true. It was obviously crowded but I think most museums are. Make sure you buy your tickets online. They usually don’t sell at the kiosk. The shops are also selling good stuff and management is decent. We went once without booking and returned empty handed and booked for the next day right away. It’s usually sold out on such short notice.
