Van Gogh Museum Tours and Activities

star-5
50 reviews
Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum, home to the world’s largest collection of works by the legendary Dutch artist, is a must-see for art and art history lovers. The museum boasts a collection of Vincent van Gogh’s personal effects, plus 200 paintings and 500 drawings by the master and his contemporaries—including Gauguin, Monet, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Bernard—plus Van Gogh’s famous works “The Potato Eaters” and “Wheatfield with Crows.” 

The Basics
The Van Gogh Museum is comprehensive yet not overwhelmingly vast; once inside, you can experience it in two to four hours. Touring the museum with a professional art historian, either on a group or private tour, is a great way to learn more about the master’s life and works. Many of these tours also include a skip-the-line ticket, which allows you to bypass the crowds and head right inside.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Lines at the museum can be very long, especially in summer, so consider a skip-the-line ticket for fast-track entry. 
  • Only small backpacks are allowed in the luggage room—no large bags, strollers, etc.
  • Strollers are permitted in the museum.
  • Photography of artworks in the museum galleries and exhibition spaces is prohibited.
  • Photography (without a flash or tripod) is permitted only in certain designated areas, such as in the entrance hall and by the so-called “selfie walls.” 

How to Get There
The Van Gogh Museum is located on the Museumplein, next to the Stedelijk Museum. It is easily accessible via tram to Van Baerlestraat. Nearby attractions include the Red Light District, the Heineken Experience, the Anne Frank House, and the Rijksmuseum. 

When to Get There
The Van Gogh Museum is open 365 days a year, with extended hours (until 10pm) on Fridays. The museum’s busiest times are between 11am and 3pm; try visiting before 11am on a weekday morning for a shorter wait time. The last admission is 30 minutes before closing time.

The Van Gogh Museum’s Notable Works
The Van Gogh Museum houses the world's largest collection of artworks by Vincent van Gogh, including famous canvases like “Sunflowers,” “Almond Blossom,” “The Bedroom,” and “The Potato Eaters.” Through van Gogh’s paintings, the museum chronicles the artist’s journey from Holland (where his work was dark and somber) to Paris and the south of France; of special note is the second-floor wall, which displays 18 paintings produced during this time. A newer wing, set partly underground, showcases temporary exhibits by van Gogh and other artists.


Address: Paulus Potterstraat 7, Old South, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Hours: Daily 9am - 6pm (until 10pm on Fridays)
Admission: Adults: € 17, Children (under 18): Free

My philosophy is to offer infotainment, I try to know everything there is to know about Vincent Van Gogh( my wife can't believe I still buy more books...), but I also spice it up with fun facts and anecdotal information about his life. Judging form my reviews you can tell that people loved it for the knowledge part but also the enthusiasm I bring to the stage. When you have kids; I tend to get them engaged too.
