The Van Gogh museum attracts more than 1.5 million visitors per year. Come and see for yourself why the Van Gogh Museum is so popular!
Not only tourists, yet also locals admire the 200 paintings and 400 drawings that are on display all year round. Letters that Vincent van Gogh wrote to friends and family can also be seen and give an interesting insight into the private, as well as to the artistic life of the Dutch master.
