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.

Excellent tour. Cecelia gave us great insight into the life of Van Gogh. It took the experience to another level! It was so facinating hearing about the family members and their relationships with him, the things Van Gogh went through, his contemporaries and those relationships, etc. Highly recommend this tour - worth the money!

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.
