Here’s everything you need to know about the Van Gogh Immersive Experience in Las Vegas.
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.

I’m so excited that the art scene has been growing in Las Vegas. When we lived here 4 years ago, it was nothing like it is now.
Van Gogh’s Immersive Experience
What is Van Gogh’s Immersive Experience
Located inside Las Vegas’ AREA15, Van Gogh The Immersive Experience lets you see his work in a completely new way. The Portal is transformed into a live painting using its 360-degree projections, sound, and lights. The 30-minute show runs on a continuous loop and takes you through some of his most famous works.
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 ended up staying there for the rest of the show. From the corner, we could see more and appreciate the scale of the room.
We stayed for one full loop, but we saw others stay longer.
Servers come around to offer drinks, so you can sit and enjoy it longer if you want.
There Two Van Gogh Shows in Las Vegas
We were confused with this at first! After doing research, we’ve realized that AREA15 has Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, which runs through July 5th.
There is also a show called Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit Las Vegas that is coming to town on July 1st to an undisclosed location.
We’re not 100% sure what the differences are between the shows, but we’ll let you know once the other exhibit opens.
