Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam Overview

Quite like the name suggests, the Van Gogh museum is a host to numerous paintings, drawings and letters of the late Dutch artist. It was opened in 1973 and has seen many upgrades over the years to keep it perpetually up to date. The museum exclusively houses the work of Vincent Van Gogh and his contemporaries. The building is located at the Museum Square in the southern part of the city. It attracts art enthusiasts from all over the world as it houses almost 200 paintings, writings and illustrations of Vincent Van Gogh.

Vincent van Gogh was a world acclaimed artist. So naturally, a museum which houses the largest collection of all his works in the world came had to be an instant favourite among people of Amsterdam or those visiting from all corners of the globe. The museum is basically a study on the artist's life. His letters, his paintings, where he drew inspirations from, everything is on display. Over 200 paintings, 500 drawings, and 700 letters to be a little more accurate. Research facilities, which are built inside the museum, attempt to study all aspects of his life and the development of his taste in art. This museum too, was renovated and reopened in 2013, and provides art workshops for children and on every Friday invites artists from other fields to come and share it's public space.
