Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam

My Rating:

The positives:

The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam ticks all the boxes. It’s pitched perfectly for both art connoisseurs and total beginners who think Van Gogh is all sunflowers and self-portraits. You will be dazzled by the glorious colours and get to know a different side to this eccentric artist.

The negatives:

Lots of people are keen to learn more about the most famous painter to come out of the Netherlands. And that means you might struggle to actually see some of the artwork on display. Even if you go on a random Wednesday morning, as I found out the hard way.

Top Tip:

The museum gets extremely busy during the peak tourist season. I would highly recommend buying a ticket online in advance. The audio guide is excellent too and really adds to the overall experience.
