Here’s everything you need to know about the Van Gogh Immersive Experience.
Lightning struck, and images melted away into darkness. Archways crumbled, and vines grew. Suddenly colors exploded, and the room came to life as we experienced Van Gogh’s work like we never have before.
If you’re looking for the one at Area 15 in Las Vegas, that one is closed, but you can still check out the Original Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit at Crystals Shop. Learn more about other locations below.

What’s the Difference Between the Two Van Gogh SHows
There are two different Van Gogh shows with similar titles. This one is called Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, and the other is The Original Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit. We’ve been to both, and the experiences are similar, but we enjoyed Immersive Van Gogh more. It was more peaceful to watch, while this one was more dramatic. However, the Starry Night portion of the show was longer in this experience.
When it comes down to it, most cities won’t have both simultaneously. We had a short period where they were both in town, but it wasn’t very long. And if you enjoyed one of them, you’ll most likely enjoy the second one too. The shows were different enough.
After arriving at Area 15, we waited in line to get into the show. Once inside, we saw tables scattered throughout the room and chairs lining the walls.
Our first instinct was to grab a table. We sat and watched as the walls and ground transformed.
After a few minutes, we decided to walk around to see if other vantage points were more worthwhile.
Most people picked a seat and didn’t move much. We found seats at a corner wall and stayed there for the rest of the show. From the corner, we could see more and appreciate the room’s scale.
We stayed for one complete loop, but we saw others stay longer.
Servers come around to offer drinks, so you can sit and enjoy it longer if you want.
- You are allowed to bring bags and cameras to this exhibit (check with your local show).
- IMO, the corner seats give you the best view.
- You can move around during the experience to get different vantage points.
- The show runs for 30 minutes on a continuous loop so if you miss something, you can stay until it repeats.
- Drinks are offered inside. Look for the servers that roam around (may not be offered at all locations).
- Book a time early in the day to get the best choice of seating.
