As our time together draws to a close, we will reflect on what we have seen and learned. We will be intimately familiar with some of Van Gogh's most famous paintings, and some of his lesser-known treasures. Not only that, we will have gained a greater understanding of who Van Gogh was as a person—how his tumultuous life seeped into his work and how his myth was born.
After your family walk at the Van Gogh, cross the Museumplein square and try a Rijksmuseum Tour for Kids. Not traveling with kids ages 12 and under? Check out our standard Van Gogh Museum Tour.
Can we book this walk for later in the day?
The Van Gogh Museum becomes very crowded throughout the day. It can be especially difficult to do the family-focused activities on this walk as the museum gets more crowded. We strongly recommend an early start time, but we can certainly accommodate requests for other times.
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.
We're traveling in a group and are more than eight people. Can we book a private tour and stay together?
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 or 800-691-6036.
Eve is an art critic and writer. She comes from an interdisciplinary background (physics, fine art, literature, art history) and completed her Ph.D. at Leeds (2011) on conceptual art and experimental exhibition strategies. Her work examines art’s social practices, multimodality, and social semiotics. Eve has worked as a lecturer in Europe and Latin America and has collaborated with art institutions as a curator, critic, and artist in residence. She has spent most of her life traveling and is intrigued by Amsterdam’s multinational and transcultural community and vibrant artistic scene.
Belina is a freelance guide and art educator for several museums in Amsterdam. Prior to moving to Amsterdam, she lived for twenty-one years in Italy, where she achieved a Master's degree from the University Of Milan in History of Art and Critics. Her background includes experience in art history, cultural management, and art criticism. She is currently living in Haarlem.
In 2012 Vanessa moved to Amsterdam and graduated with her MA in Design Cultures. Before this, she was in Caracas, Venezuela, working as an architect. Trying to find parallel lines between such different contexts, she uses her diverse background to deal with questions of how arts, architecture, language and design influence society - and vice versa. She also has a special interest in hands-on experiences and a playful approach to learning. Since she moved to Amsterdam she has gained extensive guiding experience focusing on the culture of the Netherlands, from the man-made drying of the land to the civilization around it and how this society is expressed within the arts. Her interests in urban developments also lead her to be continually active as a symposium lecturer and author.
