Learn about the artist’s personal history, see how conservators restored his paintings and get an intimate view of some of his greatest masterpieces, including “Sunflowers” and “The Bedroom.” The museum also contains many works of Van Gogh’s contemporaries, like Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Gauguin, Georges Seurat, among others.
Following your museum tour, Adventurers are invited to express themselves on canvas with an optional paining workshop designed to bring out the artist in you!

After an action-packed morning, you’ll transfer to the DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Centraal Station hotel, for the next 2 nights.
