Instagrammable Pics & Selfies Galore At ‘Van Gogh Alive’ Immersive Experience


20221215_124501A few weeks ago, I attended the media launch/preview of ‘Van Gogh Alive’, an immersive experience. Of course it’s very different than walking through a conventional art gallery. In this experience, you do wander through different (mostly dark) rooms but you get to interact with the exhibits thanks to advanced digital technology. For example, you can pose with props like umbrellas against ever-changing backgrounds depicting Van Gogh’s extraordinary art.

Here are some highlights from the ‘Van Gogh Alive’ Immersive Experience:


Pose among sunflowers, pose with sunflowers, you can take your own sweet time in every room and take as many photos as you want. I think it’s quite a unique experience and you get to learn more about one of the world’s most talented artists of all time.


You can have your picture “painted” digitally and collect the photo from a counter after you have completed the tour. I really like my photo and have it in a frame (bought the frame from Mr. DIY immediately after I collected my photo). This is one of the fun things to do during this experience.
