On a two-hour tour of the Van Gogh Museum, your guide will explain how the artist's sophisticated and painful personal life and experiences shaped his work.

You will be taken on a journey that is ideal for first-time visitors because it takes you from the most well-known pieces in the collection to lesser-known treasures.

You will meet your guide at the Museum and enter the building through the front door. You will soon be inside, where you can look through the magnificent collection of the museum, which includes works of art by Gauguin, Monet, and other artists who were his inspirations.

Your guide will take you from Van Gogh's earliest, darkest Dutch works to his more vibrant works of the French period, such as the well-known Sunflowers as well as his final work he made before his death.

Our guide (Hank) walked us right into the museum with no wait, he was well known by the museum staff. The original meeting place was a little unclear because we did the know the area, and it was about 300 yards from the entrance. But having an exclusive and experienced tour guide like Hank gave us enormous information and insight in a short period of time. For us it was worth the expense!

We had booked a small group tour (minimum two, max eight persons). Our guide, Faustina, was absolutely fantastic with her knowledge, and forthright access to the paintings - there was nothing about Vincent that she didn’t know. And to have get our group close and unobstructed access/viewing was really great!!! Her through life story and influences were very succinctly provided.

We booked the tour as we missed out on getting tickets. However we absolutely loved it and was worth it. Melissa our guide was a wealth of information without it being too high brow. We learned loads and she was always on hand for local tips and recommendations. We got far more out of the museum than we would have ordinarily (as well as having a better time). Thanks Melissa!

After my experience with Victoria, I’ll never go to a museum without a guide again. Worth every penny.

Victoria was amazing. She had so much knowledge and passion for Van Gogh. She was very thorough in describing Van Gogh’s timeline and many transitions throughout his time as an artist. It was also fun to reminisce with a fellow Minnesotan. What are the odds?

this was an exceptional museum. after seeing the movie depicting van gogh i was really excited to go here. unfortunately the skip the line option was not available. not sure if i paid extra for that or not. just a reminder to all, any museum in amsterdam requires purchasing tickets in advance especially if you have a specific date you want to go.

Our guide, Victoria, has a solid mastery of all things Van Gogh, and an infectious curiosity that leads to true appreciation for the personal and societal concerns that impacted the artist. Nearly as important, Victoria had the fortitude to lead our group directly through the throngs of ambling, photo-taking (and music-playing!) tourists right up to the art so that we could actually experience it as Van Gogh did (rather than hovering back in the cheap seats just hoping to get a brief glimpse). Victoria was able to actively engage with both Van Gogh novices and those who have clearly done a good bit of study, making the tour informative and entertaining for all. I've been on other tours with professorial guides and stuffy content, and this tour was thankfully the precise opposite of that. Highly recommend!
