Amsterdam: Van Gogh Museum

November 25, 2013 by


The famous impressionist artist Vincent Van Gogh was originally a minister before becoming a self taught artist. Visit the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands for an inside look at Vincent’s life and evolving works of art through the years.

The Van Gogh museum has the largest collection of the artist’s paintings, including the newly discovered piece Sunset at Montmajour. It also hosts the works of other 20th century impressionists who Van Gogh drew inspiration from and served as inspiration for.

Join the museum on Friday nights for live music, free tours, and light meals and cocktails, or on Sundays for enlightening lectures on Van Gogh and his works.

The museum is open from 9 to 5 every day, and until 10 on Fridays. Admission costs 15 Euro and children up to age 17 are free. The informative multi-media tour costs just 5 Euro. Skip the lines and purchase your ticket online.

Keep the children entertained with children’s audio tours, treasure hunts, coloring pages and diorama workshops.
