Van Gogh Museum
The Van Gogh Museum displays over 200 of his works, including landscapes, still lifes and drawings and letters. By displaying them alongside works from Van Gogh's contemporaries, viewers get real insights into his life and work.
The museum itself is made out of two buildings. The main building, designed by Gerrit Rietveld, Joan van Dillen and J. van Tricht, opened in 1973. The second building, designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa was added in 1999. Located on Amsterdam's Museumplein (along with the Stedelijk and Rijksmuseum), the Van Gogh is one of the most visited museums in the Netherlands.

We found the Canal Cruise required a very long wait in line. The boat was very crowded and because you are seated low in the boat there is limited visibility. Perhaps because it was Saturday, the canals were very crowded and even though the boat was expertly piloted the time was spent manuerving through an obstacle course.
