Art lovers and van Gogh fans must reward themselves with a visit to the Van Gogh Museum, one of Amsterdam's must-sees. The museum consists of about 200 paintings and 500 drawings by Vincent and his friends and contemporaries (Gauguin, Monet, Toulouse-Lautrec and Bernard), as well as many of the artist's personal effects.

Through Vincent van Gogh’s paintings, the museum chronicles his journey from Holland (where his work was dark and somber) to Paris where, under the influence of the Impressionists, he discovered vivid color. From there he moved to Arles, where he was incredibly productive, often completing a canvas every day.

Famous works on display include The Potato Eaters (1885), The Yellow House in Arles (1888) and The Bedroom (1888). One of his last paintings, Wheatfield with Crows (1890), is an ominous work finished shortly before his suicide. Of special note is the wall on the second floor, which displays 18 paintings produced during a two year period in the south of France, generally considered to be his artistic high point. A new wing, set partly underground, showcases temporary exhibits by van Gogh and other artists.

Practical Info

Next to the Stedelijk Museum building, The Van Gogh Museum is located on the Museumplein, easily accessible via tram to Van Baerlestraat. Nearby attractions include the Heineken Experience and the Rijksmuseum. Lines at the museum can be very long, especially in summer. Avoid the long lines and try going on a weekday morning. Once inside, allow 2 to 4 hours to see everything.
