“A unique way of appreciating Van Gogh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

This is a modern presentation of Van Gogh's works which hang in a labyrinth. It also includes 7 3D booths which are enjoyed with a supplied pair of 3D glasses. Be sure to note that this is not the Van Gogh museum, nor is it affiliated with the Van Gogh museum. The good that about this exhibit is that is presents images of Van Gogh's works which have been destroyed, stolen or are currently in private collections. I would recommend seeing this in conjunction with the Van Gogh museum. Also note that since this is not a museum, the iamsterdam card is not accepted. My wife and I still enjoyed this exhibit and it was fun to see the 3D version of the Cornfield with Crows; I felt like I was in the middle of Hitchcock's The Birds! This exhibit is not for anyone, but if you view it for what it is, you should enjoy it.

“3D is not the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

3D animations did not do anything for me.. but the quotations taken from Van Gogh's letters written along the exhibition were the highlight. Read them and watch the reproductions of the paintings to feel Van Gogh.. OK, two 3D were good, the labyrinth and weat field with crows.

“Enjoy the temporary Van Gogh exhibition in the Beurs Of Berlage!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

After a short walk through the Beurs Of Berlage I went to the side entrance of the Beurs Of Berlage in order to enter the exciting world of Van Gogh. This exhibition (until mid-May 2013)shows all his famous paintings along a serie of lesser known and even some destroyed and lost paintings. With arrows you are guided through the exhibition on the basement of the building where you will be blown away by Vincent Van Gogh his unique, very colourfull and expressive style. A special feature is the 3-D painting, especially The Asylum and Wheat Field With Arrows turn into a mindblowing experience! Not to be missed by any serious lover of the art of painting.

“Architecture”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Go there to see Amsterdam School architecture. You can drink something in the cafe , but don't expect anything exceptional.
