Glad to get advance tickets. Museum was sold out otherwise. They limit access so you can see each painting. Very efficient.

Simple and convenient. We got the tickets within an hour after we bought them. There was also a link attached to the city tours. We only took 2 out of 3, but we really enjoyed them!!
Always skip the line!
, Aug 2022
Skip the line is always the way to go! The museum was fabulous - I’ve always loved Van Gogh so it was fascinating to learn more about him.
Museum advised no such thing as skip the line ticket
, Aug 2022
Van Gogh museum itself was amazing, two stars as we got to the museum and told no such thing as a skip the line ticket, its used by vendors to sell tickets. We had to join the standard queue, it was the only queue. Now requesting a refund for the difference between museum ticket and no existent skip the line.

Easy to use. Make sure you book your tickets in advance. During our stay the museum was fully booked. The museum is awesome. Many masterpieces anyone would recognise and also the works you have never seen. A must!
Great visit to Van Gogh museum
, Jul 2022
Using the skip the line ticket was very helpful and did reduce my wait time greatly. The museum is worth seeing; it is very spacious, the artwork is well-organized. Also enjoyed the restaurant for a refreshment while there.
Wish we had more time…
, Jul 2022
We had to wait anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour for the email containing the tickets to download. This was exasperating. It took a valuable time out of our limited time in Amsterdam. The museum was wonderful.

Easy Access
, Jul 2022
Having the skip the line pass made getting in to the museum quick and easy. Using the audio guide I was happy with the information given on Van Gogh and the art. I’m glad I didn’t waste money on getting a professional guide.
Great tour definitely worth the skip the line.
, Jul 2022
This was a great tour and skip the line was definitely worth it as the regular line was extremely long. We really liked how the museum was organized and enjoyed seeing the paintings from not only him. but from some artists he was influenced by and who he influenced.

Disappointed with Viator for this event
, Jul 2022
Although we love the Van Gogh Museum, I would not recommend getting tickets through Viator. We did not receive the bar-coded tickets in order to show them upon arrival. We did get confirmation of our order, but the museum could not accept that - they needed a bar code. I had to call from the museum and request that they be sent to me so that we could enter. Making long-distance calls while away from home is expensive and the time lost on a very busy day was quite frustrating.

Nice service - but did not experience lines
, Jul 2022
While I appreciate the ease of entering the museum, it did not appear necessary as there were not long lines? Perhaps because it was a Sunday or we got lucky? I very much enjoyed the museum and recommend attending it. We receive the tickets via email on time. Definitely need tickets for Anne Frank’s house ahead of time. Nice service just not sure I needed it.
Van Gogh, brilliant painter and committed artist of humans
, Jun 2022
Very organized museum full of Van Gogh paintings, sketches along with those of fellow painters of the period. Van Gogh’s portraits were a sharp departure from the portraiture of the period. The museum focuses on Van Gogh the man and hardworking, brilliant and devoted artist instead of the story of his struggles with mental illness
Great museum
, Jun 2022
Loved the museum. However, this wasn’t a ‘skip the line’ deal as advertised. You have to have a ticket to get in to the museum. There is only one line for ticket holders.

Hi, thank you for taking your time for a review. Actually during the summer season it works a bit worse, since the occupancy is quiet big. But if you don't have your ticket, you would not be able to enter, since at the entrance they don't have tickets for the same day. Too many people want to visit the museum right now.
A sample to follow

To see how a common person became so famous and it could be inspiring for anyone with hard work and how shameful he finished his life but with love for his family
A must in Amsterdam

Van Gog museum is a must in Amsterdam! We couldn’t get out of the museum! My daughter also loved it!

Seeing the works of Van Gogh and learning much more about his life and times was fabulous, memorable.

The tour and artwork was very fulfilling as I am a huge fan of Van Gogh's work. The one negative was trouble using what you sent to get in and had to pay again for headsets, which we paid for in reservations.

The paintings were fantastic! Had trouble with headphones. Every one very helpful and knowledgeable. Loved Amsterdam in general. Museum was the highlight!
visite du musée van gogh
, May 2022
Le musée est magnifique et vaut le détour, par contre, il était inclus une visite de 3 quartiers d’Amsterdam via une appli LOKIMO. Impossible de me faire géolocaliser, je n'ai donc pas pu faire ces visites guidés, c'est bien dommage, et ceci malgré le contact avec les services de viator pour trouver une solution.
