Guests are transported into the world of Van Gogh through a brand new space with an exclusive design made up of three zones which follow one another in a fluid manner. The education room leads to the unique waterfall room which flows into the immersive experience room. Freed from their frames, Van Gogh’s dramatic paintings appear on projection-covered walls inviting guests to fully immerse themselves in the incredible detail of his work and be enveloped in his breathtaking, swirling, colorful flowers, coffees and landscapes. And, hearing the artist’s own dreams, thoughts and words over a symphonic score leads to an unparalleled narrative experience.

“This distinctive and unique multimedia artistic adventure resonates deeply with audiences. Encompassing a refreshing new twist that art lovers have never seen before, Beyond Van Gogh: the immersive experience gives a new appreciation for the breathtaking work of this tortured artist. Unsurprisingly, millions of people around the world credit Van Gogh for improving their relationship with art.
