The lifestyle series:
The lifestyle series takes a look at what’s hot and must sees in London and around the world under five main headings – What, Where, Why, When and Anything Else.
What is it?
Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, which maintains the world’s largest collection of the works of the world’s most popular artist – Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) including his paintings, drawings and letters, completed with the art of his contemporaries.
Where is it?
Van Gogh Museum can be found at Museumstraat in Amsterdam, just a short distance from the Rijksmuseum and the Heineken Experience and is open daily from 9:00 until late and costs just €17 for adults (kids go free).
The collection features more than 200 painting, 500 drawings of Vincent van Gogh and his contemporaries. The collection is expertly curated with his work is organised chronologically into five periods, each representing a different period of his life and work: The Netherlands, Paris, Arles, Saint-Remy and Auvers-sur-Oise. Even if you are not a big Van Gogh lover, this museum is a must see!
When should I go there?
Our top tip is to visit in the morning between 9 and 11 and pre-book your tickets online to beat the queues.
Every Friday evening during the high season the Van Gogh Museum is open until 10 pm. There is a guided tour in English starting at 7 pm as well as a cocktail bar and DJ.
