Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is the perfect way to learn about the artist himself. Vincent Van Gogh was a Dutch post-impressionist painter, who completed more than 2,000 works of art which nowadays can be found around the world. Van Gogh’s work was famous for its beauty, emotion and colour. He unfortunately only gained world recognition after his death and during his lifetime he struggled with poverty.

At the Van Gogh York exhibition, you and your children can step into one of the artist’s paintings through cutting-edge 360-degree digital projections as well as an atmospheric sound and light show. Through this immersive art expo, his artworks will be vividly brought to life. The Van Gogh experience in York and Leicester is an amazing day out for all the family, so grab your tickets now.
