Day 17 – Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, Holland

April 2015

Our next place of visit which happens to be on the same tram line from Bloemenmarkt is Van Gogh Museum. You take tram nos 1 or 5 and get off at Van Baerlestraat stop. Advanced entrance ticket for Van Gogh can be purchase here. Holders of advanced ticket will be accorded immediate entry. You do need to leave your jacket, backpack and what not at the allocated counter. Cameras are not allowed in Van Gogh museum. I am not a lover of art but Van Gogh paintings using stoke techniques got me interested in his works.

No, no, no. No cameras in Van Gogh museum remember? These portraits were not photographed inside Van Gogh museum. They were taken at Keukenhof where there was a section themed, Van Gogh.

Fanatics of Van Gogh’s work of arts, can purchase all things Van Gogh at the museum gift shop located on the ground floor. Go to this page to know what else is on sale.
