THE open-air museum

From his letters we learn that the landscape left a permanent impression on Vincent van Gogh and he made several paintings and sketches in this period.

This moor landscape of the 19th century comes to life at Veenpark, a nearby open-air museum. Here the visitors can view Southeast Drenthe from that time through the artist’s eyes.



Veenpark is open from Arpil 1 till October 29 every day of the week, 10.00 - 17.00.
