Jump ahead of the line and into the world of Impressionist art with a skip-the-line ticket to the Van Gogh Museum, located in the art-lover’s paradise of Amsterdam’s Museumplein area. This Netherlands institution houses the world’s largest collection of Van Gogh works and attracts upwards of 1.9 million annual visitors, meaning travelers who don’t book ahead often have to brave big crowds and long lines to see the world-famous artwork within. Book a skip-the-line ticket for priority access at your chosen time and bypass the ticket office entirely. You’ll thank yourself when you’re inside admiring Van Gogh’s Almond Blossom and The Potato Eaters.
While all tours include skip-the-line access to the Van Gogh Museum, some offer additional experiences in this Dutch city. Here are your options.
Guided Museum Tours
To get the most out of your stop at the Amsterdam Van Gogh Museum, opt to visit as part of a guided small-group tour or with a private guide. Museum lovers can also choose to combine this experience with guided skip-the-line access at the grand Rijksmuseum, found next door.
Entry Plus a Canal Experience
In order to see more of the city beyond the Museumplein, combine the Van Gogh visit with a boat journey along the canals by cruise or hop-on hop-off canal bus. Whichever you decide, seeing Amsterdam’s many landmarks will be a breeze as you cruise the scenic waterways.
Those looking to hit more major attractions without wasting time can consider a city pass, which includes multiple admissions, or a combo tour that combines skip-the-line entry to both the Van Gogh Museum and Keukenhof Gardens with a canal cruise.
