A visit to the Van Gogh museum is a must for any lover of art. It holds nearly 200 paintings by Van Gogh in addition to his letters and drawings.

The museum also has an impressive collection of works by the painter’s contemporaries, friends, followers, and artistic predecessors, including many Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists.

Upon visiting, you might notice that the museum is made up of two different structures. The main building where the entrance sits was designed by Gerrit Rietveld and is angular in style, while the rounded secondary structure was built 26 years later by architect Kisho Kurokawa. The museum was under renovations for their 40th anniversary last year. Now they built a new glass entrance to better tie the museum in with the Stedelijk and other structures on the Museumplein . Looks great!
