Van Gogh Museum Reviews
Beautiful pictures. Totally overcrowded unfortunately... so if you like to walk around and look at photos alone, you shouldn't go. more »

Super tax with entry times once you enter you can not take photos (which personally bothers me a lot) There were many of his personal work items that excited me a lot but in my opinion his most important works (at least those present in this museum) were poorly highlighted. Very nice temporary exposure.
"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.
