A Day at the Van Gogh Museum

Van Gogh MuseumLocated in Amsterdam’s Museumplein district, the Van Gogh Museum boasts the largest collection of Van Gogh paintings and drawings in the world. It is centrally located and it was a lovely walk from our hotel.

If you’re ever in Amsterdam, be sure to check out first hand The Bedroom, Almond Blossom, Cypresses with Two Women, Starry Night Over The Rhone, The Night Café, Landscape at Twilight and what is widely believed to be his last work, Wheatfield with Crows. You won’t regret it.

Not surprisingly, Van Gogh inspired a new generation of artists, whose works are also featured in the museum collection. These were a few of my personal favorites:

Odilon Redon, The Red Tree, 1905
