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. 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
