there are trains from Schiphol to the centrale station. You can have a look at the timetable here http://www.amsterdam.info/airport/train/
As far as I remember the museum is a bit far from the station, you could use the tram. There is the tourism office in front of the station, you can ask there for further information.

Just a word of advice. At Schiphol airport you pay an extra 50 cents per ticket booking at the counter rather than the machine. However at the machine the default quick ticket for tourists arriving is for a 'comfort' class, which is first class, and almost double the price. Therefore, skip the first screen and type in your ticket sort.
Van Gogh is too far to walk from Central Station if you have luggage. About 2 km. If you're out for the day though, without heavy bags, it's no problem. You can take a tram from central station. See the www.nileguide.com blog on public transport in Amsterdam for an explanation.
