- See incredible works by Van Gogh’s contemporaries - including Gauguin's Les Misérables, and Monet's Tulip Fields near The Hague
- Get in quicker via the 'Yellow Lane' (the fastest way in is the Van Gogh Museum: Skip The Line ticket - though these often sell out in advance)
The Van Gogh Museum houses the largest collection of the Dutch master's artwork in the world. Observing his paintings allows you to trace the famous artist's development and see how his work differentiates him from other 19th century artists. This must-have Amsterdam ticket allows you to skip the ticket queue and go straight into the quicker 'Yellow Lane'. For direct access, upgrade to Van Gogh Museum: Skip The Line, and walk right in.
The permanent collection of Van Gogh's works in the museum displays over 200 items, including his serene landscapes, beautiful still lifes and compelling drawings and letters. Together, they cast a revealing light on his extraordinary life. Don't miss his legendary painting Sunflowers ,and his eccentric self-portraits, all of which provide proof of his sense of humor, as well as his talent.
The Van Gogh Museum also showcases works by some of his contemporaries — including Gauguin and Monet — both of whom put his paintings into a broader context. Besides the permanent collection, the museum also exhibits seasonal expositions, which show various aspects of 19th century art history.
Enjoy a special multimedia guide created by DJ Armin van Buuren and listen to music from his world tour while you admire the paintings. The guide costs €5 and can be picked up when you enter the museum (available in Dutch and English from 22/10 to 01/12).
The Van Gogh Museum's multimedia guide is available in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, Mandarin and Japanese.

Voucher lane supposed to be fast and priority lane. However normal queue of people to buy tickets was moving much faster. I had to notify to museum hosts that it is not right. Only after my notice they started to move our lane faster.
Fantastic experience and well worth the money to get the "skip the line "tickets... the voucher tickets are not a good idea as those people still had to go into a queue so be careful when buying on line that you get the right tickets
Very crowded on the weekends. Try to go mid week
The curators presented the works in such away that greatly intensify the impact of the works on the observers. FOR THE FIRST TIME I RECOGNIZED THAT THE art of Van Gogh is divine. We saw how much he influenced other painters specifically and modern art in general.
Just easy and having purchased tickets early cut us ahead of the crowds.
Buying tickets in advance was the perfect idea. We were able to walk right in shortly after 9 a.m. and saw a great deal of the museum before large crowds arrived. The museum is not to be missed!
Easy process and saved us from waiting on a line in the rain in Amsterdam.
The exhibitions are well organised, especially the temporary one. I also like the drawing event, though my skills are not good. The staff are also really helpful and friendly.
I have a nice time in Van Gogh Museum!
Fantastic experience, learned so much about the man.
