What people are saying about Van Gogh Museum

This was one of the best museums I've ever been to. It is very focused on one artist's life and journey. It was fascinating to see how Van Gogh developed his technique and was influenced by various contemporary artists. It was also great to see whose work he directly influenced. There is a large amount of his work here. The only thing missing is his famous "Starry Night" painting!

Highly recommend this tour for anyone coming from the US that has a love and/or curiosity of Van Gogh. The tour guide, ours was Monique, was very engaging and knowledgeable. She explained what was going on in Vincent's life, and in the world, during the time of his different works. The time went by so quickly!!

Great museum dedicated to the genius of Vincent. A must go to any art aficionado. It has works from other painters, such as Gaugin, Monet, Manet. It helps compare their styles in capturing the moment

Very interesting museum, learned a lot about the journey of Vincent Van Gogh through his actual work.

We had a wonderful experience at the Van Gogh Museum and were so grateful to have gotten tickets.
