The ability to wander through the moving images gives you a greater appreciation of Van Gogh. Seeing his fluid brushstrokes in motion, the detail and colors will give you insight and illuminate how this genius's mind worked. Benches are for you to watch the presentation. Afterward, you can experience a smaller room with mirrored slats reflecting Van Gogh’s artwork around you.
