Surprising experience in the village of Van Gogh. A ride in the middle of its landscapes. The museum is also a wonderful experience, very kind staff, as well as those who rent the bicycle who always offer something to drink, special people! I would recommend it to all nature and Van Gogh lovers!

The tour was great, this was just to look at the museum and when you get there if you buy a ticket for the stadium tour the museum part is included. Really good experience though even bought a scarf at the end. Good luck for the season

The museum is really very nice. Although there is no other original by van Gogh apart from an original letter, I really liked the presentation of his life with many modern forms of representation and an appealing ambience.

my name was not down on the list and they tried to tell me i only paid for a museum, if fact i paid for the stadium tour as well. disapointing

Very nice experience, have been in there for almost 2 hours! Our youngest is 2.5 and the oldest 17.5 so for a very wide range of age.
