Van Gogh Museum information
Framed by a gleaming new glass entrance hall, the world's largest Van Gogh collection offers a superb line-up of masterworks. Trace the artist's life from his tentative start through his giddy-coloured sunflower phase, and on to the black cloud that descended over him and his work. There are also paintings by contemporaries Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Monet and Bernard.
Queues can be huge; pre-booked e-tickets and discount cards expedite the process with fast-track entry. Opening hours vary seasonally.
