The garden has been planted in the colours used by Van Gogh. It is surrounded by lots of souvenir shops on one side, but in spite of this is still peaceful.

We had a really nice experience when we visited Espace Van Gogh. We found some oversized wooden games, mostly addressing to children, but anyway we also had some fun playing around. It was very lively with too many people, mostly locals, having some creative and entertaining time with their children.

Very pretty garden, true to its depiction by Van Gogh except perhaps for the plethora of souvenir shops. I was hoping to also be able to see his room, but the premises are still in use by various businesses.

The foundation pays homage to a great artist who sadly will never know how the world came to appreciate his art. If only he had been recognised in his lifetime he might have led a much longer and fulfilled life. One cant help but fee nostalgic when visiting this wonderful gallery.

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...

Lovely little garden but if it were not for the Van Gogh association would not really be worth a visit.

Not a place to spend hours, but well worth a few minutes to enjoy the peace and cool, and see a location which inspired van Gogh's art.
