Van Gogh Museum Tour
Van Gogh and Amsterdam: an Art History Love Story
The Van Gogh Museum becomes very crowded throughout the day. We strongly recommend a 9:00 am start time for morning tours, but we can certainly accommodate requests for other times.
No. Unless you remove the Van Gogh 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.
The Van Gogh Museum is a small building and is the most visited museum in the Netherlands. During the low season months (From November - April) we can most likely accommodate groups of up to 10, however it’s not possible in the summer months due to museum volume. We're happy to discuss your group's needs and how we can accommodate you depending on the season you're booking for. Please email us to check.
