Van Gogh Museum


Museums Art

The Van Gogh Museum is a relatively young museum, having been established in 1973. However, since then it has spread its wings and rapidly grown into one of the most prominent art museums in the world. Based on its outstanding collection, tremendous research and superior exhibition facilities, the Van Gogh Museum has attained the pinnacle of success in terms of popularity and quality.

What to see and do at the Van Gogh Museum

Along with the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum is the most well-known museum in Amsterdam. Thousands of tourists flock to its galleries every day. At the moment, the Van Gogh Museum welcomes approximately 1.5 million visitors each year. The special attraction for visitors that this gallery holds is that it presents you with a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity to get to see the largest collection of Van Gogh's works ever, and compare it with the works of other artists. Moving on, the Van Gogh Museum is splendidly supplied with study corners, libraries, audio-video tours and a food lounge. The libraries have comprehensively covered the entire life and works of Vincent Van Gogh, the acclaimed Dutch artist, along with covering all the major painters and Impressionists of the 19th Century.

About Vincent Van Gogh

The Vincent Van Gogh Museum is a place of worship for art aficionados, and they should definitely not miss the opportunity to witness the marvels of someone who is widely regarded as one of the greatest artists who ever lived. Not appreciated for his artistic ability while he lived, Van Gogh's work had far-reached impact on the 20th century art scene and led to many artists adapting elements of his style into their own.
