  • It is a nice place to visit, but especially for the art by other artists. When you are looking for items made by Vincent van Gogh you can better visit other places.
  • The Vincent Van Gogh Huis is located at the same spot where formerly Vincent‘s birthplace stood, which was demolished in 1903. As for the content of the exhibition, I personally would not say it was very informative or coherent. You‘re led up the stairs into a room where a few furniture pieces are. The audioguide went from one story and bits and bobs from Vincent‘s letters to Theo (sometimes paraphrased) to other stories. As someone who has read numerous books about Vincent and Theo, I could coordinate the pieces of information, however, my sister who knows nothing more of Vincent than his paintings and the fact that he at some point cut off his ear, was confused and then lost interest because she didn‘t know what to do with the randomised stories told in the audioguide. The second exhibition room contained artwork from an other artists and quotes from other famous people who were inspired by Vincent. And that was the whole exhibition. I‘d suggest the people in the Museum create a new exhibition concept, with a clear line and message. Perhaps they can incorporate Zundert-specific Memories Vincent told. If theres not enough financial means to hire a curator then maybe start a volunteer project to revise the exhibition. I‘m sure there are many motivated people who are passionate about the Van Goghs and would live to create a meaningful experience to the visitors of Zundert.
