Tips for visiting the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam

The best time to visit the Van Gogh Museum

The Van Gogh Museum right on the Museumsplein in Amsterdam is one of the best museums in Amsterdam and therefore a real tourist magnet. The Van Gogh Museum is open daily from 9:00 to 18:00, on Fridays even until 22:00. The best time to visit the museum without queuing and waiting is on Friday evening, as the museum is open especially long. The tip to arrive as early as possible is hardly valid for the exhibitions in the Van Gogh Museum. Especially in the morning until late afternoon the exhibition is visited by numerous tourists. If you are not flexible but would like admission without queuing, book a ticket without queuing in advance.

Opening hours

Sunday - Thursday: 9:00 - 18:00 Friday: 9:00 - 22:00 hrs

Prices for admission tickets & tickets

Prices for the Van Gogh Museum: Adults pay €17.00 per person for admission to the museum and its exhibitions. Children and young people under 18 always have free admission and do not need to buy tickets. If you go through the museum and the exhibitions without a guide, you can buy a multimedia guide at the entrance. The guide costs 5,00€ to the ticket for adults and 3,00€ for children over 12 years. The guide is available in seven different languages, also in German.

The I amsterdam City Card is available for 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours.

Tips and tricks for a shortened waiting time

Spontaneously making a short detour to the Van Gogh Museum can involve long waiting times. During the peak hours between 11:00 and 15:00 o'clock, one sometimes even waits up to two hours for the entrance at the box office. But even outside the main visiting hours between 9:00 and 11:00 am the waiting lines in front of the museum can become long. The visit without queuing works with a bit of luck on Friday evening or with the Van Gogh Museum tickets with priority admission. The ticket is booked online for the desired period of time and upon entry you pass the other waiting passengers directly.

By the way, children and young people never have to queue at the cash desk. As admission is free for children, you can walk right through to the entrance with your ID card. By the way, everyone who has an Amsterdam City Card always gets priority admission, without queuing.

How much time to plan

At the Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam, visitors can not only marvel at the many paintings by this exceptional artist, but also gain a fascinating insight into the creation of the works of art and an unembellished view of the life of the creative genius Vincent van Gogh. Why did Van Gogh cut off his ears? What happened to the artist's ears afterwards? Plan for a visit of at least 2 - 3 hours to be able to admire all the highlights of the exhibition. You can also book private guided tours of the exhibition online.

Directions: The fastest way to the Van Gogh Museum

The walk from the centre to the Van Gogh Museum takes about 30 minutes. You can reach the Van Gogh Museum by public transport via the Van Baerlestratt tram stop. You can reach the station with the lines 2,3,5 and 12 and take the bus (145,170,172) to "Museumsplein". You should not drive there by car, as not available or overpriced parking spaces make the desire for sightseeing vanish. Those who want to get a taste of Amsterdam air should do it like the locals and cycle to the museum. Bicycle rentals are available on almost every street corner and the prices are very humane.

3 highlights during a visit to the Van Gogh Museum

The Van Gogh Museum houses the largest collection of Vincent Van Gogh's works of art and, in addition to its unique exhibitions, also provides an insight into the life of this apparently "crazy" genius. One of his most famous paintings "Starry Night" is unfortunately not on display here. Since 1941 it has been in the Museum of Modern Arts in New York, but masterpieces such as "The Potato Eaters", "Irises" and "Wheat Field with Reaper" are. Van Gogh was known as an eccentric whose art can be classified as post-impressionist. You should pay special attention to these highlights on your tour of the museum.

1. The Potato Eaters

The painting "The Potato Eaters", in Dutch "De Aardappeleters", was published in 1885 as one of Van Gogh's first major works. The picture shows farmers or farm workers eating dinner. With the earthy, dark tones, Van Gogh wanted to show that the people: "who eat potatoes by their lamp, with the same hands that reach into the bowl, have also dug up the earth themselves". Van Gogh understood the work as proof of his ability to paint figures. Despite criticism, "De Aardappeleters" is today one of Van Gogh's most important works.

2. The Sunflowers

Van Gogh painted the series of sunflower paintings in France between 1888 and 1889. When looking at these works of art, it is immediately clear what the artist was interested in. He wanted to show the multifaceted possibilities of painting a whole picture with very few different colours. In fact, Van Gogh used only three different shades of yellow to create these works of art. The pictures of the sunflowers were meant for a room of his friend Gaugun.

3. The bedroom

"The Bedroom in Arles" is a painting by Van Gogh from 1888 and, as the title suggests, shows a bedroom. Van Gogh painted three different oil paintings for this purpose, all of which showed the bedroom in the yellow house in Arles. The pictures provide insights into Van Gogh's life and give information about his friendships and habits. Above the bed of the room and the other walls, for example, hang three portraits, including a self-portrait and a mirror, which reveals much about the artist's attitude towards his identity. "The bedroom" was created while he was recovering from his illness, excessive drinking.
