- Delve into Van Gogh's unique talent that was really only appreciated after his death

One look at the vivid colors, bucolic scenery, and oblong shapes of British artist David Hockney's paintings, and it's easy to see which Dutch master his work is inspired by.
Hockney - Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature presents Vincent Van Gogh's masterpieces alongside Hockney's most iconic works, and draws the eye towards their shared appreciation for the little details that help turn dried paint into living scenes that spring from the canvas. Hockney's imposing Yorkshire landscapes are a central part of the exhibition, with his stunning The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate as a highlight.
A splendid boat cruise through Amsterdam's canals, plus a trip to the Van Gogh Museum. These are two quintessential Amsterdam activities. If you finish your day off with a tiny glass of Heineken and some raw herring and onions, you'll practically be entitled to a Dutch passport.
When you're in Amsterdam, you want to make the most of your time. This involves sightseeing and visiting the city's world-class museums. With this combi-ticket, you avoid an either/or situation; get access to a one-hour canal cruise through Amsterdam's UNESCO World Heritage canals and a visit to the Van Gogh Museum.
Aboard the ship, you'll see the cultural wealth of 17th-century Amsterdam, with famous and important sights such as the Anne Frank House, the Skinny Bridge, and the Westerkerk.
Before or after the cruise, depending on your timeslot, take the same ticket you used to board the boat, skip the long line at the Van Gogh Museum and show it at the entrance. BOOM! You're in.
The museum has over 200 of his impeccable works including landscapes, still lifes and drawings and letters. You'll also enjoy works by some of Van Gogh’s contemporaries, including Monet and Gauguin, both of whom were a big influence on him.
