Van Gogh Museum (Priopass) - Music and Cocktails on Friday Nights

Van Gogh Museum (Priopass) - Music and Cocktails on Friday Nights 3

Did you know that after Vincent Van Gogh cut off his ear, he personally delivered the bloodied chunk to his favorite brothel afterwards? He was also probably wasted on absinthe, the preferred drug back of that day. Neither of those details are mentioned at the Van Gogh Museum which, for some reason, prefers to focus on his success as a painter. 

The famous Van Gogh Museum houses the largest collection of his work, including most of his greats like ‘Almond Blossom’ and ‘The Bedroom’. Admire the rural beauty of ancient Netherlands and dive into the madness of a genius through his iconic style that has not only survived the ages, but serves as an “unmistakable remembrance of times long past.” 

Suckers buy tickets at the box office at the museum. Priopass gets you in the faster line. Just show up, beep, and you’re in. It is possible, in the most peak moments, that you also have to wait a bit in the fast pass line, but it’s for sure faster than the regular line.

With Priopass (Priority Pass), you can visit every Amsterdam attraction without a ticket. Skip the queue for museums and attractions with your free Priopass. Activate it with your credit card and pay for what you visit afterwards. Never buy another ticket! Scan, beep, and you're in! 

Your hotel representative can activate your Priopass for you, or you could do it yourself online at 

Open daily 9-6, til 10pm on Friday. Friday nights are a great time to visit. Then there is art and music and cocktails!
