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 of these tours also include a skip-the-line ticket, which allows you to bypass the crowds and head right inside.

Selina was a wonderful tour guide who was very knowledgeable with every aspect of this tour. She made sure that everyone in our group was enjoying themselves and answered any questions we had. I can only hope that the next tour I do will have someone like Selina to lead the tour. Thank you for a wonderful time!!!

Skip-the-line Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam Private Guided Tour
This museum tour was our favorite tour. We spent 4 days in Amsterdam in August. The tour guide was excellent and made the Van Gogh Museum come alive. We enjoyed skipping the long line to get in and getting personalized info on the works and life of this famous artist.

Anita, our tour guide works at the Van Gogh Museum and had so much knowledge! The story of Van Gogh's life was told with her experience and historical background (some of her own opinions) which was second to none - an excellent tour. Thank you.

Paola conducted two wonderful tours - one of the Rijksmuseum where she provided an in depth historical context of Rembrandt, the other Dutch Masters and their works and then of the Van Gogh Museum where her knowledge of Van Gogh - the tortured individual - helped to make his work more comprehensible and his genius more appreciated!

Skip-the-line Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum Semi-Private Guided Tour
Two tours starting at 10 am with only a group of 8. Highlights and descriptions of works at the Rijkes and Van Gogh museums in Amsterdam. One hour lunch break. Henk was so pleasant and helpful and he shared so much information and welcomed lots of questions from our group. He made this a wonderful experience for all of us at both museums. Wear your comfortable walking shoes! Thanks Henk!

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. A newer wing, set partly underground, showcases temporary exhibits by van Gogh and other artists.
