Van Gogh Museum

The Van Gogh Museum is a museum in Amsterdam featuring the works of the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh and his contemporaries.

The main structure was designed by Gerrit Rietveld and opened in 1973. The architect of the Exhibition Wing was Kisho Kurokawa; it was completed in 1999.

Two of Van Gogh's works were stolen from the museum on the night of 6-7 December 2002: View of the Sea at Scheveningen (Zeegezicht bij Scheveningen) and Congregation Leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen (Het uitgaan van de hervormde kerk te Nuenen).
