Let me continue my previous post. I was telling you guys about the south part of Amsterdam and the Van Gogh Museum.
If you are going to visit the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, here are some essential facts about the Van Gogh Museum you should know.
- It is open daily from 10:00 to 18.00, except for Fridays, on which it is open from 10:00 to 22.00. Ticket office works daily from 10.00 to 17.30 (on Fridays to 21.30).
- Admission fee for adults is € 12.50, for 13-17 year-old children – € 2.50, children under 12 years old enter free of charge.
- There was a long queue at the admissions office, as this museum is very popular among tourists especially during the summer months. That is one more reason for me to obtain a Museum card, as Museum card holders gain immediate
entrance to the museum and do not need to wait in ticket lines.
- As a guide in the museum instructed, museum visitors should not come too close or touch works of art. It is prohibited to take photos, to film, or to make audio or video recordings. It is not allowed to take large bags and bottles into the museum – these items must be left in the cloakroom. There are also security checks with metal detection on entering the museum.
I found out that there is one more way to get a ticket to the Van Gogh Museum. As the Van Gogh Museum works with a
number of inexpensive Amsterdam hotels and Amsterdam’s youth hostels, you can purchase tickets for the museum at the front desk of your Amsterdam hotel. There are a lot of 2-5- star cheap hotels in Amsterdam participating, so it is advisable to check your Amsterdam accommodation.
