Van Gogh Museum Reviews
This is my third time here. Perfect organization (tickets bought online) and breathtaking masterpieces. I’ve loved as well the Millet’s gallery. Very interesting. I’ll be back again! more »
This museum is well worth a visit. We learnt a lot about the life of Van Gogh and saw some of his amazing paintings. more »
"Extraordinary art of the ordinary things". Brilliant paintings by Van Gogh, mostly art of country life. However, there is a huge queue for tickets. Thus it is highly recommended to buy tickets online to avoid almost an hour long queue in busy time. Would recommend to use hearing device in the museum that would cost 5 euros.
Great place for families. My kids did the treasure hunt which was fun, educational and appropriate in content. Artwork, of course, was beautiful. Watch your kids closely because there is nothing to stop them from reaching the paintings other than a horizontal bumper that can be stepped over.
