Van Gogh Museum visit

Even if you are not a big Van Gogh lover, do not miss this museum. Its modern main building was designed by Gerrit Rietveld, completed by his partners after his death (opened in 1973), with later built elliptical exhibition wing by Kisho Kurokawa (opened in 1999). Both give a visitor brilliant space to admire art works, to look and to breathe. While this is one of the most crowded museums in the world, you will always be able to find there your private moment to admire Van Gogh’s genius. There is a free wifi in the museum.
