Van Gogh and Rembrandt Noorderkerk

Our experience of Van Gogh and Rembrandt

Our visit to the Van Gogh and Rembrandt exhibition was truly memorable. The entrance to the Noorderkerk, adorned with flags and signs, was easy to locate, and after a quick ticket scan and a stop at the restroom facilities, we were ready for the experience.

Inside, we had the choice of cosy bean bags or chairs, both offering a comfortable view of the entire show. We switched between seats and bean bags, so got the best of both perspectives, and added to our experience.

Learning about Van Gogh’s sources of inspiration was a highlight. Through his letters to his brother Theo, the show reveals how Rembrandt’s masterpieces influenced him. Van Gogh’s frequent studies of people, like sailors and dancers, to incorporate into his own work were particularly intriguing. The exhibition also does a fantastic job of distinguishing the unique styles of both artists.

What truly amazed us was how Van Gogh’s Post-Impressionist style came alive in the 360-degree light show. The vibrant colours and textures were so immersive, they left a lasting impression.

The exhibition is available in both Dutch and English, but we recommend watching it in your native language for better clarity due to the acoustics of the venue. The entire experience lasts about 40 minutes, and offers excellent value for money. While there are no refreshments available at the exhibition, there are several restaurants across the street where you can enjoy a drink or meal.
