In an innovative presentation, the Beyond Van Gogh Exhibit uses projection technology to create an engaging journey through hundreds of art pieces made by Vincent Van Gogh. As they enter the museum, guests will first walk through a hall with pictures with information about Van Gogh’s life and his art. 

Moving onto another room, guests will be greeted by walls with projections of Van Gogh’s art, wrapped in light, color and shapes, that swirl, dance and refocus into flowers, cafes and landscapes.  These pieces of art come alive as they appear and disappear, flowing across multiple surfaces.

The moving museum will be in St. Louis until Jan. 30, 2022. It is open Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday through Saturday from 10 a.m to 11 p.m, with various hours during the holidays. Each visit takes around one hour. The site is located at the Starry Night Pavilion at Saint Louis Galleria on 1155 Galleria Pkwy. 

Ticket prices can range from as low as $24.99 for children 5-15, to as high as $93.99 for VIP tickets, which would include entrance up to two hours before or after the start time as stated on tickets, priority access to the exhibit and a Beyond Van Gogh Merchandise package.
