Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our guide, Anna, was prepared with additional visual aids to augment the works that were displayed. We received the benefit of her graduate degree research. Highly recommend!!

Meeting Point 
We'll meet in front of the Moco Museum, which is located at Honthorststraat 20. Please do not go inside the Moco Museum. Your guide will be waiting across from the museum's entrance, on the other side of the bicycle lane. They will be holding a green Walks sign.
Please meet 15 minutes prior to the tour start time. 


Can I stay in the Van Gogh Museum after the tour?
No. The group entrance ticket for the Van Gogh Museum dictates that the group must all leave the museum together. Therefore, it is not possible to remain in the museum on your own after the tour has ended.
