Van Gogh Museum  

Having opened on Museumplein in 1973, the Van Gogh Museum is one of the most popular museums in the world, attracting visitors from every corner of the globe. Naturally, this is in large part due to it housing the largest collection of works by Vincent van Gogh – more than 200 paintings, 500 drawings and 700 of his letters.
