Van Gogh Museum
Enjoy the world's largest collection of Van Goghs, including paintings, drawings, and letters. The museum also has a large collection of works by some of Van Gogh's contemporaries and friends like Gauguin and Toulouse-Lautrec, as well as a number of older artists whom Van Gogh admired, including Léon Lhermitte and Jean-François Millet. The museum features regular exhibitions highlighting art toward the end of the 19th Century.
THIS MUSEUM WAS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL, TERRIFIC, INSPIRATIONAL, & MAGNIFICENT. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT IN USA....I WISH WE COULD HAVE MORE IN-YOUR-FACE ART HISTORY BUT TO ME PERSONALLY WE DON'T. OVERALL I GIVE THIS AN A+++
My visit to the Van Gogh Museum was somewhat disappointing. Although I understand that original paintings must be protected from excessive light exposure, the lighting in the museum was downright dim. The pieces on display were not representative of the exuberant color that we have come to identify with Van Gogh.
I planned my trip to Amsterdam, in part, to immerse myself in the Van Gogh experience. Although the museum was a letdown, the city of Amsterdam far surpassed my expectations. What a glorious place of cafes, canals, bicycles, boutiques and beautiful people!
Are you kidding me? This place was GREAT! After a couple of hours of looking at these fabulous pieces of art I needed a cigarette! I was practically in tears, I was so impressed. Of course, I'm a huge fan of Van Gogh, but there are other artists' work there as well. It was one of the major highlights of my trip to Amsterdam.
The Van Gogh Museum is a wonderful experience! The walk along all of Van Gogh's Paintings is amazing. Being so close to the paintings and really getting a chance to study his work.
My 7 year old daughter even enjoyed being there. She asked tons of questions and oohed and ahhed all the way through.
I highly recommend all see this museum.
You should definitely not miss this if you're in town. The museum is very small and "digestable" in a few hours. The collection is small but remarkable. Also, you'll learn alot about the motivations and artistic evolution of this influential artist.
