Though a little bit expensive, the Van Gogh Museum is an artistic jewel among all the naturalistic or historic museums that can be found in Amsterdam.

There are more than 200 paintings and about 5-600 drawings of the famous Dutch artist to be found in the museum. All of them make you think and contemplate as you watch them. They are really beautiful, true works of art.

Paulus Potterstraat 7, 1071 Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Price:
€ 14 fro adults and free for children.

Opening Hours:
Every day from 10am to 6pm. (on Friday until 10pm)
