Good to know

Van Gogh fans will love it. It's the largest collection of the great artist's paintings, drawings and letters in the world, and gives a detailed account of the various stages in his life.
Buy tickets in advance or expect queues of up to two hours during peak times. You'll still have to queue but it'll be much faster.
It's open till 10pm on Fridays for a night of cocktails, music, VJs and art. Keep in mind it gets busy.
Ensure you're in the fastest queue by booking a specific time and date, rather than an open ticket.
Plan to spend just over an hour here (most visits take around 75 minutes).
It's been the subject of a few memorable art heists. In 1991 twenty paintings were stolen but were discovered 35 minutes later in an abandoned car. In 2002 two paintings were stolen and while the culprits were soon found, it was 14 years before the paintings turned up in Naples.
Arrive an hour before opening (9am) if you haven't bought tickets in advance and want to avoid long queues.

The inside story

Home to the world’s largest collection of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam transports visitors on a fascinating journey through the life of the artist and his contemporaries. The museum introduces the complete story: the artist, the context, Van Gogh’s personal ambitions, his emotions, the myths that surround him and his influence right up until this very day. The Van Gogh Museum’s collection includes world-famous paintings such as Sunflowers, Almond Blossom and The Potato Eaters. The museum also organizes three temporary exhibitions every year.

The Van Gogh Museum is open 365 days a year and tickets are available online only. Don’t miss out and book in advance to discover more about Van Gogh and his contemporaries with the multimedia guide, available in 11 languages.

The subjects portrayed by Van Gogh are mainly self-portraits, still lifes, landscapes and in particular paintings with cypresses, grain fields and sunflowers. Tragically, Van Gogh committed suicide at the age of 37 after a life full of unhappy love stories and persistent depressive crises. The master left behind more than 840 paintings and 1000 drawings, many watercolors, lithographs and sketches on letters currently located in the Van Gogh Museum as well as in hundreds of other renowned museums and art exhibitions around the world.
