    i’ve been to multiple live Van Gogh experiences over the years, yet this one just seemed to be a tad basic . the whole concept is very interesting and the immersive cameras are very well used. however for £15 each i would’ve hoped it would have had a bit more of his history shown rather than just flicking through his most popular work. The exhibit afterwards just had a few display boards regarding different pieces. Overall if you are willing to spend £15 go for it , others may completely disagree but in comparison to other exhibits this one is very basic .

    This was my 2nd visit as I loved the first one so much. I can recommend the virtual reality experience at the end. I felt I was wandering through the paintings- it was magical.
