Absolutely beautiful gallery in a beautiful park. A bit of effort to get there from Amsterdam, took me 1 tram, 1 train, and 2 busses, but finding the way and transfers was easy enough, and public transport has wifi to keep track of where you're going. And you get nice scenery along the way! The museum is in a national park, which is lovely to walk through, if a bit overpriced. The gallery itself is in a beautiful building, with a well designed layout and a stunning collection. They also have a fantastic sculpture garden to walk through. I spent almost a week in Amsterdam, and going out to Kroller-Muller was a highlight, very highly recommend!!

Set in the most beautiful national park and breathtaking collection in the museum. Loved the free bikes in the par. So easy to get there on public transport from Amsterdam. Stayed in Otterlo ten minutes walk from the park entrance
