Serendipity helps you stray off the beaten path, while planning makes sure you don’t spend your vacation standing in line at tourist hot spots.

Van Gogh Museum — Plan Your Visit

Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum contains the largest collection of paintings by Vincent van Gogh in the world.

It is the second most-visited museum not just in Amsterdam — but in the entire country of the Netherlands.

Our extensive Van Gogh Museum guide includes details about the collection, along with information about the current temporary exhibition: Golden Boy Gustav Klimt.

NOTE: No ticket sales at the door. You can only visit the museum after buying timed-entry tickets online. We show you how and where.
