    Be sure to get the audio, it's worth the extra 5€. Very informative and you even get messages from Van Gogh during it where you can read some of his letters.

    Mix of art gallery and biography is a superb solution. I was expecting to see gallery of Van Gogh's paintings but actually I also learned numerous facts of his life story. Definitely worth a visit.

    If you're interested in Van Gogh life and works then you have to visit this museum. Recommend to take the interactive audio guide. By the way, if you're less than 18 y.o., so the entrance is free!

    Don't come here expecting to see "Starry Night" (you won't). Come here for a deep dive into Van Gogh and a top-notch audio tour of the museum. Check out the special exhibits and gain a new perspective

    Every Friday evening the museum stays open until 10pm. Join one of the free guided tours of the permanent collection (7pm in English, 8pm in Dutch). You could also enjoy cocktails and music.

    Must see museum! The audio guide is worth the 5€ and they have a kid's treasure hunt with a small prize at the end...made my 7 year old incredibly happy and learned about Van Gogh in the process!

    Take your time, if possible take a multimedia guide. Read about Van Gogh paintings before you go. Sunflowers, lovers, irises, almond blossoms, potato eaters are must see. Starry night is not here.

    Book tickets online in advance and you can skip the queue. Allow yourself plenty of time to enjoy all the works, not just the most popular, but you can still get through in 2 hours or less.

    Book in advance to skip the line. You’ll get a time slot of 30 minutes in which you can enter. Audio guide is well worth it’s money; you’ll learn much more about Vincent and his paintings.

    Get the audio guide and book a time in advance; this is one of my favorite museums because it takes you through the evolution of Van Gogh's life as painter rather than individual, unrelated paintings

    Wonderful collection, not terribly large but big enough to keep you occupied for at least an hour. Go after three, purchase ticket online. Coffee shop beforehand and park afterwards recommended too

    May you be a fan of Van Gogh or not this place is brilliant! It's not only about Van Gogh himself but it also gives you context of the era he lived and created in

    Great museum! I loved how everything was organized and related to each other. I'll definitely recommend this museum. You might want to first visit the lower floor for a short documentary on his life.

    We visited the museum on a Monday at 14:15 and it was really crowded. It might be worthy investigating when it’s less crowded. There’s another cloakroom in the first floor. Don’t line downstairs!

    VERY crowded, try to hit early if you want an up close view of the art. Get the museumkaart if you plan on hitting all museums in this area and almost anything else in Amsterdam that requires a ticket

    Van Gog's artworks include landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and are characterised by bold colours and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art.

    Absolutely beautiful museum. A lot of focus is on Van Gogh's process, how he painted over canvasses, on top of other paintings; you can literally view his brushstrokes under a microscope! loved it.
