Since its original creation in 2008, Van Gogh Alive has been the most visited multi-sensory experience in the world. This blockbuster exhibit, which celebrates the life and work of Vincent van Gogh, takes guests on a mind-blowing journey through the Dutch painter’s life and art.
Van Gogh Alive provides a rare opportunity to see some of the world’s most famous paintings, as well as experience the artist’s life and work, through huge multimedia digital displays. Featuring more than 3,000 of Van Gogh’s images, more than 8 million people in over 70 cities around the world, including London, Rome, Madrid, and Berlin have taken delight in the super-scale show.
Van Gogh Alive is a vibrant symphony of light, colour, sound and fragrance, that is combined and amplified. With the help of the latest technology and giant screens, this exhibit brings the Dutch painter’s work to life in a way that has never been seen before. This engaging exhibition gives its visitors the sensation of walking right into his paintings.
Projectors create an immersive experience as you walk through the gallery, with scenes from his paintings appearing all around you. Even the air is fragranced with a comforting and warm woody scent to help create a deep sensory engagement so visitors feel more immersed in the works.
Classical music featuring Claude Debussy and Camille Saint-Saëns provides the perfect accompaniment to the visuals, transporting you into Van Gogh’s world.

There are no barriers between the viewer and the art, and people are free to roam around the exhibit at their own pace. You are even invited to sit on the floor and take in your unique perspective. Children were having great fun running through the field of sunflowers. This laid-back atmosphere makes the experience more enjoyable and allows visitors to really appreciate Van Gogh’s work.
Van Gogh Alive is a must-see for fans of Van Gogh or anyone interested in art. Both adults and children, will enjoy this immersive exhibition of seeing Van gogh’s masterpieces come to life.
