Tickets to the Van Gogh Museum

About Van Gogh Museum

The Museum tends to get very busy during the day, especially between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM, so if you wish to avoid noise and crowds, we suggest that you book your time slot in the first couple of hours after opening or before closure.

One of the most-visited museums in the city and in the world, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam features works by the famous Dutch artist and his contemporaries. The local collection of Van Gogh’s paintings and drawings is the largest that exists. The Museum hosts permanent and temporary exhibitions laid out chronologically in its two buildings, allowing to track the evolution of the artist’s style throughout the years. 

Key items on display include:

  • In the Rietveld building, instantly recognisable masterpieces by Van Gogh, including The Potato Eaters, Sunflowers, The Bedroom, and self-portraits — as well as the artist's drawings and letters.
  • The Kurokawa wing hosts temporary exhibitions. Those currently on display focus on Gustav Klimt and his signature style and Marcel van Eeden’s series of works inspired by Van Gogh’s own series Gasworks (1882).
  • A study into Van Gogh’s legacy and impact on the world’s culture — from his contemporaries and the artists inspired by him after his death to the role of his style in contemporary pop culture.

The museum was well designed and the audio tour took us to the most significant works. There was time to enjoy the other art as well. The gift shop offered quality and interesting items from which we partook!
