      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!

      exceptional museum

      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 tour guide Victoria was great

      She took a lot of time with us, she was clear and enthusiastic. With a lot of passion and knowledge about the museum and the artists. Really patient with the older people on the group. The group was small so we got the chance to discuss some concern with no rush. I will send some one to her if I can. I think They should get closer to the museum entrance to meet the group with the heat of the summer now for a lot of people is difficult to walk on the sun sometimes. I think they should have audio guided so she don’t have to speak so loud to be heard.
