Van Gogh Museum is the world's largest collection of his work.

The museum showcases the progression of Van Gogh's life and artistic style over time.

From his early years in the Netherlands, painting the Potato Eaters...

To his later years and time in Arles, painting iconic works such as The Bedroom

And even rare, stencil drawings...

The building itself is a work of art. Gerrit Rietveld designed the main building, and Kisho Kurokawa designed the new wing.

With over 23,000 pieces of art, the Van Gogh Museum  is absolutely a must-visit in Amsterdam
