Be Dazzled by Van Gogh’s Masterpieces at the Van Gogh museum

This Attraction is closed until further notice.

Famous sunflowers, ‘The Potato Eaters’ and well-known self-portraits of Vincent van Gogh, can be found in the museum that is entirely dedicated to the popular Dutch artist. 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.

In the summer there are extended opening hours, so visit the Museum in the evening as well!

Note: make sure that you choose the right time and date for your ticket since these tickets can NOT be changed and/or refunded!

It’s my third time in Amsterdam and my third visit of the Van Gogh Museum. I just love all his art and also the atmosphere in the museum. Probably I will visit it again :-).

I read that I have to designate my time at which I would like to start visiting the museum. Is there any limitation on the duration that I could visit counting from the visiting time?

Dear Frankie,

You can spend as much time in the museum as you like. Normally people tend to stay around 1,5 – 2 hours in the museum.

Hoping to have provided you with sufficient information.

Excuse me, if I booked the tickets online and choose the time, and arrive at the spot on time, can I enter the museum at once or I have to keep the line still? Thanks

Dear Shen Li,

Thank you for the comment.
If you arrive at the same time as your booked time slot there won’t be any waiting time for you or perhaps a maximum of 5 minutes.

Kind regards,
