50 years since the Van Gogh Museum opened in Amsterdam

50 years since the Van Gogh Museum opened in Amsterdam

June 02, 2023

Today marks 50 years since the Van Gogh Museum opened in Amsterdam. Located in Museumplein, this has been a landmark destination for art lovers from all over the world who are all united by one common interest—the work of a Dutch painter named Vincent.

The museum is home to the largest collection of Van Gogh work in the world—perhaps unsurprisingly. There are over 200 paintings and over 400 drawings in the museum’s collection, as well as over 700 letters.

The museum is hosting a party today, which is part of a longer programme of events they’ve been running to celebrate half a century. The full programme of events, including painting classes, can be found here

If you don’t fancy spending an afternoon on the Eurostar, but still want to experience Van Gogh’s command of colour, why not do so from the comfort of your own home? Check out our Van Gogh-inspired prints here.
