  • Great selection of material to view. Would not want to be there peak season as it was bad enough trying to get through the crowds in May which spoiled the experience

  • Museum was really interesting. Brought paintings to life by overlaying with Van Gogh’s life. Loved the variety of paintings on show and the comments from Van Gogh’s letters. Recommend a visit here...

  • Wonderful museum. Vincent was an excellent painter who is immortal. And if you like art, this is Alpha and Omega art. I recommend setting aside at least 4 hours for the museum tour, but it is not a problem to spend the whole day here. Nice souvenirs cannot be missed. Clean toilets and free changing rooms. Admission is higher but adequate. My only complaint is that I can better mark the entrance to the museum. I recommend ordering the ticket online in advance. I recommend everything great .
  • Amazing museum; I highly recommend booking an option with the multimedia device as its narratives were priceless. In this way you learn a lot about the life and life conditions of Van Gogh as such which gives you a great insight into his paintings and stories behind. Make sure to purchase your tickets online in advance as they can sell out easily.
