"Extraordinary art of the ordinary things". Brilliant paintings by Van Gogh, mostly art of country life. However, there is a huge queue for tickets.

Great place for families. My kids did the treasure hunt which was fun, educational and appropriate in content. Artwork, of course, was beautiful. Watch your kids closely because there is nothing to stop them from reaching the paintings other than a horizontal bumper that can be stepped over.
