"The best time to visit the Amsterdam museums is April through May. You’ll have the chance to avoid the massive crowds of tourists that fly in during the summer and enjoy the best weather of the year. The months of September through November also see lesser crowds. Winter is understandably cold; but, the upside is that airfare and accommodation is cheaper.
The best time of the day to visit is in the early morning. For those who don’t consider themselves morning persons, consider showing up late afternoon when many visitors have already gone home. But, don’t forget that most museums halt all admissions at least 30 minutes before closing time.
If you go by tram, the closest stops to the Van Gogh Museum are Van Baerlestraat and Museumplein. Then again, bicycle is one of the most popular modes of transportation. And if you find yourself driving around Amsterdam, then you should use the paid Q-Park parking structure below Museumplein on Van Baerlestraat. But, perhaps the best way to get around the city is with an iAmsterdam City Card. It provides unlimited use of the city’s public transit system for the duration of the validity of the card, not to mention free admission at the very museums you plan to visit.
Many of the pieces you’ll see in the Van Gogh Museum were unsold and inherited by Vincent’s brother, Theo. But, Theo died 6 months after Vincent and the paintings then fell to Theo’s wife, Johanna. She sold his works to make him more well-known, but also kept some of his works as her personal collection. After her death, her son inherited these works. Later, the works of art were displayed at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam for many years. In 1962, the collection changed hands and was given to the Vincent van Gogh Foundation. In 1963, the Dutch government commissioned a design for the museum from the Dutch architect, Gerrit Rietveld. But he died a year later. The museum was finally completed in 1973.
