I'm surprised this museum isn't better known because it holds the worlds second largest collection of Van Goghs Maybe because it's almost impossible to reach by public transportation.
I'm giving the museum five stars even though it was somewhat frustrating experience. The Viator tour is a half day tour meaning four hours. The traveling time from Amsterdam is 1:15 each way meaning 2:30 total. So museum time is 1:30. Enough time to see the Van Goghs and the other painting in the central wing but nothing else. The sculpture garden is very famous and beautiful. We were able to see the part adjacent to the building but nothing else.
However the paintings make the trip worth it. Both very famous and not so famous paintings by Van Gogh and other master including Mondrian, James Ensor, Odilon Redon,Theo van Doesburg, Bart van der Leck, Leger, Leo Gestel, Seurat, Picasso and more.
To do a satisfying tour you'd have to spend at least five hours here including having lunch in the beautiful cafe, which including the traveling time from Amsterdam would make it a 7 1/2 hour tour!
Our tour guide Rom was great, pointing out sites along the way and giving us a quick overview of the museum once we got there.
I'd do it again.
Our driver Gan was very informative. Beautiful museum.
