Great to get early access. Some of the get on points could have had better signage.

I wish to spend more time at the museum. But it was so convenience to have tickets already.

Wonderful museum.
I learned a lot about the man and about
mental illness during his life time.
The short line saved a lot of time.

We enjoyed the museum.

Having a timed entry into the Van Gogh Museum was excellent. The opportunity to rent listening devices was one we took advantage of. I enjoyed hearing more background information on the why and how of Vincent's choices to create the works hung there. We needed about 90 minutes to travel through the complete exhibit. Just about right so my husband wouldn't get antsy and want to leave before we were done!

This is a nice museum. However, we encountered a very rude ticket booth staff male. We passed him 2 Tickets and tours tickets to exchange for museum tickets, he only gave us one tickets instead of 2. When we approached him, he insisted he only received one ticket from us whereas he is holding on to 2 tickets on his hand. Though he reluctantly gave us 2 tickets at the end but he never apologies!

The bus ticket was amazing and well worth it - there is no better way to see the city and get to all the sights: and you have 24 hours to use your ticket.
The Skip-the Line Von Gogh museum was also totally worth the money: not standing in line is essential when you are preesed for time. The directions regarding where to pick up the vouchers were not clear, though.
