Van Gogh Museum
The Van Gogh Museum is located at the Museumsquare in the Amsterdam South borough and close to several other popular attractions such as the Concertgebouw, Rijksmuseum and the Stedelijk Museum. Amsterdam Van Gogh Museum maintains the world’s largest collection of the works of the world’s most popular artist – Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890). The official opening date was on June 3, 1973 and ever since then, has succeeded in being one of the most popular museums in Amsterdam to pay a visit to.
As seen above, the Van Gogh Museum is the largest collection of the artist’s paintings and drawings throughout the entire globe. With millions of visitors each year, it has made it the 2nd most visited museum in Netherlands and the 35th most visited art museum in the world.
Designed by Dutch architect and furniture designer, Gerrit Rietveld, who later died in the process of building the museum, it slowed down the process and wasn’t opened until several years later after his death in 1973. With newer renovations along with a newfound piece of Van Gogh’s work on September 9, 2013, this museum is nothing short of extraordinary and unforgettable. Being able to witness such an immaculate and impressive artist’s own pieces of art is both historical and special to say the least.
