Over 3,000 of Vincent van Gogh's most famous works are taken outside of the from and brought to life in a whirlwind of vibrant colors and vivid details. For the first time, guests can walk through images of famous works, such as "The Starry Night," "Sunflowers," "The Cafe Terrace on the Place du Forum," "The Yellow House," "Bedroom in Aires" and many more. Guests will be complete immersed in Van Gogh's paintings with floor-to-ceiling projections. Part of what makes Van Gogh's art so famous today is his life story.
