  • I used to think Van Gogh's use of colors were super exaggerated and interpreted, but after visiting here and seeing through some of the windows down to the gardens, my thoughts changed as the colors of nature here are very much as vibrant as his paints...even on a rainy day. Especially when the curator juxtaposed the prints of some of his works with their actual views respectively, the relationship is uncanny. Entrance was 7€ for Adults. Also, FREE PARKING !
  • Interesting hospital of Vincent Van Gogh
