  • Wonderful museum. Vincent was an excellent painter who is immortal. And if you like art, this is Alpha and Omega art. I recommend setting aside at least 4 hours for the museum tour, but it is not a problem to spend the whole day here. Nice souvenirs cannot be missed. Clean toilets and free changing rooms. Admission is higher but adequate. My only complaint is that I can better mark the entrance to the museum. I recommend ordering the ticket online in advance. I recommend everything great .
  • Enjoyable but very busy. Buy your tickets online well prior to your visit. We had tickets for 9 but due to train delays we didn't get there until 9:10 and there was a line, so make sure you arrive early. Audio guides are really good.
