     This museum displays hundreds of Van Gogh paintings, including the famous Sunflowers and works by other Impressionists. I’m a huge fan of this style of painting, so I love this museum. Go in the afternoon to avoid the lines. Opening hours: Sa–Th (9am–5pm), F (9am–10pm). Price: €15, students 18 and under are free.

    Often when you see famous works in person for the first time, there are few revelations. You feel you have seen it before. With Van Gogh's sunflowers, I felt like I was looking at something I had never seen. I bore just a passing resemblance to prints that I had seen. I don't know how they lit it, but it just seems to sparkle- the colors leap. And Sunflowers isn't even the best work in this museum. Really interesting to follow his development as an artist

    This has been on my bucket list for over 25 years and my excitement was palpable. The price is a reasonable at around £16. We booked our tickets online to save queuing and went straight in. All the staff we met were polite and informative. Headsets were available for €5 per person. The order of viewing was sketchy and discombobulated and didn’t feel like it flowed. This could be forgiven, but what really was the low point is that all the paintings are in glass fronted frames, so it’s very hard to see the depth of the brush/knife work. This was not made better by the lighting reflecting off the glass. I found that bending low and looking up at the paintings was the only way I could get the right view. Some very good pieces to view, but ultimately a bitter sweet experience.

    It’s a very well- organized museum. No massive crowd. We got to walk around and know more about Van Gogh in a easy and relaxing pace. The whole place is spacious and elegantly designed. We really enjoyed the museum and will come back again if we get a chance.

    We booked our tickets in advance online and it saved us queuing outside in the rain. We were there at 11am on a Saturday morning, just as it got busy, but as tickets are timed the museum wasn't overly packed. Spend at least 2 hours here and appreciate the vast Van Gogh works!

    Perfect place to know about Van Gogh, very detailed the history about his life, the paintings, I liked very much and encourage everybody to visit but, buy online first.

    The Van Gogh Museum collection is not the most impressive one, considering the masterpieces that this painter produced. Of course, this is a matter of taste. However, what was really annoying for me was the poor lighting quality in several rooms that negatively affected the visibility of some paintings.

    My wife loves these paintings, I'm not so bothered but reading about Van Gogh's life was interesting and very well presented. An audio tour is available although we didn't use it. The restaurant was great for lunch

    We pre ordered our tickets for a 9 am entry,we did the 1 1/2 hour audio tour which was great.The audio tour was very impressive and because we were there early there was not many people allowing us full view of all paintings.

    I found it magical! We spent I think 3 hours there and we were completely caught by the history of Van Gogh. Everything is very well organized.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this museum. The gift shop was one of the best I have ever seen with unusual items including glass cleaners, lipstick holders with mirror etc. All very tempting with attractive patterns of Van Gogh's masterpieces.

    It's a super cool museum, when we went it wasn't that crowded, which was awesome. I saw a few girls try to take a picture of Van Gogh's self portrait and they were swarmed by museum personnel who wouldn't leave them alone until they deleted the photo. So don't try it.

    This was my second visit to the museum (first was about 25 years ago). The exhibits are fresh and do a great job of placing Van Gogh in his biographical, historic, and artistic context. No short cuts have been taken. The exhibits are well organized and the viewing conditions are good, EXCEPT for the traffic problems: Van Gogh is so well-loved that even on a gloomy Monday afternoon in October there were just too many people there. Some patience is needed to see the more popular works since these tend to have large crowds assembled around them. The museum cafe is very good and I recommend it highly. I doubt that one can do much better outside of the museum. Unfortunately the exhibition wing was closed since they were working on putting a new exhibition (the Dutch in Paris, opening soon). My only complaint is that taking photos with mobile phones is forbidden. This one of the few European museums we've visited recently that had such a ban. I'm not sure if this is because of copyright issues or perceived dangers or just traffic nuisances, but it was kind of disappointing, since I like to document what I've seen in order to keep track. These are obviously not great photos that would have an reproduction value. (I assume that once cameras are built into eyeglasses, this prohibition will become a lost cause.)

    Like anyone else who visits Amsterdam, the Van Gogh Museum is always up for discussion when choosing attractions to visit. The builidng is beautioful, modern, clean and well organsied by the staff that work there. Cloak rooms, gift shop and toilet facilities were all well located and clean. The experience was OK. It was very busy, with lots of tourists all at the one time which made it hard to look at specific pieces. The collection is great, however, we would have liked to see some more notable pieces in the collection (all sold to other museums around the world). It was fascinating, but crowded. We would have liked to have spent more time exploring the museum instead of waiting in line, or saying "excuse me" to lots of tourists. It's worth a visit to tick it off your to do list in Amsterdam, but perhaps go early in the morning/ weekday.

    Not only does this museum display works of this great artist, it gives great insights into the man him self. If you cam to Amsterdam this museum is a must see. Book your tickets form the museum in advance to avoid the lines. Or use a smart phone to book online when you arrive. Make sure you book from the Museum Site and not secondary sites. plan a min of 2 hours once you are in the museum.

    Had approx 1.5hrs in here with an audio tour and was very impressed with the art but also how well done the tour was / museum is. I had pre-purchase a ticket however it didn't look too much of a hassle to do it on the day. Really nice part of town as well with the other museums close by and beautiful buildings around.

    This is a wonderful museum. It is a must see if you are visiting Amsterdam. I recommend making reservations on-line for an early entry time. Even when it is crowded it is possible to see the paintings by waiting and moving around. The audio tour is terrific. It really adds to the experience by explaining Van Gogh's development as an artist. I learned so much. When you are ready for a break, the museum has a wonderful cafe where you can get breakfast or lunch and then go back to see more!

    Just wonderful. Give it at least two hours with the audio. We reserved a month before and was worth every minute of it, best to go as early as possible, you can have a nice coffee at the cafeteria too...bravo!

    This museum displays many of his works and his different styles. It is imperative that you use a tour or rent the recorded tours to enhance your understanding of the art. The displays are beautiful and the building is very cool too. If you enjoy art , this is a must see.

    We visited the Museum during our stay in Amsterdam. Well organised , gives a complete view about the evolvement of the artist , you got to know about all the aspects of his life. Definitely recommended especially on a rainy day.
