Good morning, all. Thanks to JenS, I just learned of a new exhibit that will be at the Van Gogh museum this fall and winter, Van Gogh along the Seine, featuring not only Van Gogh, but other important artist of the late 19th century.
We will be in Leiden for about 5 days this fall, while the exhibit is available. I've checked out the website, and it looks like tickets are still available.
My questions have to do with timed entry, and choice of days. Available days for us are Friday through Monday. From your experience, is any particular day better, or more to the point, worse, for visiting the VGM? I'm assuming that the Saturday and Sunday will be more crowded; the Friday is the first day of the exhibit. I'm leaning toward the Monday.
Timed entry tickets seem to be required; is there a limit on how long we can stay? Can we leave for lunch and return on the same tickets?
I wasn't planning on getting Museumkaarts, but the more I look at what's available, the more likely I am to change my mind. I do see, however, that I would have to get the Museumkaart before I book the timed entry for the Van Gogh.
Any other helpful suggestions? Any problems people have run into with either the Van Gogh or the Museumkaart?
Thanks for your help.
