As a lover of Van Gogh paintings, I was very disappointed with the lack of anything worthwhile at this site. It was a waste of time to visit.

This is a place for Van Gogh fans and to appreciate the many temporary exhibitions from Van Gogh, it is a neat building and holds always a top Van Gogh exibitions, the one currently is a top one dedicated to Van Gogh phases from the dark phase in Dutchland to the later phase in Arles and Provence, high quality stuff...

A peaceful and pretty space where Van Gogh stayed in psychiatric care. Flowers, shade and some souvenirs snow fill this space.

Perhaps it is because we were there in October but it was not what we expected. There was no information except for purchase at the tourist shops that we could find.
