Is the Van Gogh Immersive Experience Worth It?
Today we are going to be talking about the Vang Gogh Immersive experience. Are you guys ready for an adventure? Let’s begin.
The Van Gogh experience, an immersion experience, has been now traveling all around the world for probably over a year or so, and it finally made its way over to Guatemala, which is a pretty big deal.
The thing is, what I do recognize is when my parents went to the one in New York City and in the United States, in the bigger cities, in the more popular areas, the experience is not just the Immersive experience of sitting in this huge room and being immersed in his paintings. You also get the chance of going into a 3D experience with these specific goggles in the country.
In Guatemala City, we were not able to do that. They didn’t have goggles because it was more like a huge exhibition hall that was only rented out for one month. And during that month we did have that incredible experience.
Is The Van Gogh Immersive Experience Worth It?
The Van Gogh Immersive Experience is really worth it, it’s an incredible experience everyone needs to do at least once, but as you can see it’s even better in huge cities or countries like the United States.
It’s just as pricey, by the way, as it is everywhere else because I think the price is set for everybody. It was $30 per person.
Make a Reservation
You have to make a reservation during the weekdays. I’m certain that this is around the world during the weekdays when there’s no holiday, it’s pretty wide open, but they cannot let you in without a reservation made online, it’s 45 minutes sessions, but on weekends, completely booked out.
Completely booked out. If you do want to do a weekend, and if it’s only traveling in your country or in your city for a very short period of time, if you can do the weekdays, it will be just a much more fun and enjoyable experience as well because it’s not going to be that crowded either. You don’t have to wait in line for hours. So why is it 45 minutes? Because it’s considered like sessions. The way it works is you have to come in, usually around your time. It’s a revolving session kind of thing. It just loops around and over and over again. You enter and then there’s obviously, like, his paintings, they’re all replicas. Obviously, you go through that to get an idea of whom the person is.
They have this really cool video of him talking about who he is and his life, which is fascinating because I didn’t really know that much about him until we arrived, and I didn’t know that he committed suicide at the age of 37. So few facts like that. And it’s not made in a sad way. It’s just made in a really factual, actually inspiring way. And you get to really see his work. And then you could go and there are a couple of little exhibits where you can sit inside, like a painting on the bed and stuff like that.
But the actual Immersive experience is entering this huge room, this enormous room that has 22 projectors, and they are in complete sync. And this is where you come to life with the Van Gogh Immersive experience, where you sit down, where you stand, and you could lay down, and it’s just all around you. It’s paintings coming to life. I mean, to be honest with you, the exhibit itself is a work of art in itself, and it is really, really well done. So if you have a chance to take your kids or just go on your own, we went as just a date for me and my husband.
It’s just a really fun experience. And you don’t actually need more than 45 minutes. 45 minutes is really all that you will need once you enter inside.
