Excellent museum to enjoy some of his best pictures and the pictures of related artists. Excellent to spend there the day and let you mind blows. I would recommend to booked in advance, so you can do everything much faster. A good point? The cloakroom is completely free 😍
If you like Van Gogh I would highly recommend visiting this museum! The museum is organized in a way to slowly introduce you to Vincent's artistic career and life. It highlights his contribution and collaborations with other artists of the time. The featured exhibit was incredible as well. It featured artist self-portraits - a wonderful experience which I enjoyed as much as the main collection. I highly recommend ordering your tickets online and in advance. Include a multimedia device for the best experience! The museum took us about 4 hours to walk through fully.
