Sylvia, a beloved member of our community, recently explored the Van Gogh Museum. Join us as we provide a sneak peek into Sylvia’s enriching journey.
I thought it was good, there was no long time at the entrance, well organized and you could always find a contact. Insanely interesting and beautiful paintings on different floors. There are also various souvenir shops where there is something for everyone. There are also various souvenir shops where there is something for everyone.
You can spend 3 hours there and you also learn a lot about the life of Van Gogh and his painting technique. At the entrance, there is a small corner where you can get drinks and biscuits. For a Coke, a Water and a cookie, paid 14 euros, quite overpriced.
Basically, I always recommend going to a museum first thing in the morning, as they are all very different, ill up quickly and you can no longer go through it relaxed. Definitely worth seeing, with tickets sold out by weeks
