The Basics

The Van Gogh Museum is comprehensive yet not overwhelmingly vast; once inside, you can experience it in two to four hours. Touring the museum with a professional art historian, either on a group or private tour, is a great way to learn more about the master’s life and works. Many such tours also include a skip-the-line ticket, which allows you to bypass the crowds and head right inside.

More than worth the price!
Anita was brilliant! Informative, interesting and deeply passionate. An art historian herself, she shared both the official story and her own insights, gained from in-depth study throughout her career. She also knows how to finesse getting her group near to the painting she is showing gently and kindly.

Private Amsterdam Tour: Through the Eyes of van Gogh
I really felt like I learned a lot from Rolf. He brought along an IPad to expand upon the artworks that were in the museum. Any question I asked about Van Goh, he knew the answer readily.

The Van Gogh Museum’s Notable Works

The Van Gogh Museum houses the world's largest collection of artworks by Vincent van Gogh, including famous canvases like Sunflowers, Almond Blossom, The Bedroom, and The Potato Eaters. Through van Gogh’s paintings, the museum chronicles the artist’s journey from Holland (where his work was dark and somber) to Paris and the south of France; of special note is the second-floor wall, which displays 18 paintings produced during this time. Another wing, set partly underground, showcases temporary exhibits by van Gogh and other artists.
