Begin at the Rijksmuseum
Continue at the Van Gogh Museum
Or, Visit Them Individually
The Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum become very crowded throughout the day. We strongly recommend a 9:00 am start time, but we can certainly accommodate requests for other times. The Van Gogh Museum is open late on Fridays; this is the best day for a later start of this combination walk.
No. Unless you remove the museum tickets from your cart, we will purchase tickets on your behalf and your guide will have the advance tickets ready for you. If you remove the tickets from your cart, we will assume you will be purchasing a museum pass or tickets on your own.
Tickets at the Van Gogh Museum are timed and re-entry is not permitted, but you can stay inside the museum as long as you like.
Does this tour include any current temporary exhibitions?
The tour visits the permanent collections of each museum. Your entry tickets are valid for temporary exhibitions as well, but often, it is necessary to separately book time slots for visiting the exhibition(s). If you would like to include a particular temporary exhibition, we can usually do so on a private, custom basis. Please get in touch with us for more information and updated pricing.
The Van Gogh Museum is a small building and is the most visited museum in the Netherlands. We keep our private tours capped absolutely at eight people per expert guide in this venue so that we can provide the highest quality experience.
We're happy to discuss your group's needs and how we can accommodate you. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
