Get access to unique content, useful info about the venue and exclusive interactive engagements to enrich and extend your experience of Immersive Van Gogh.
Massimiliano Siccardi’s breathtaking Immersive Van Gogh exhibit, scored by multimedia composer Luca Longobardi, brings visitors inside the moving world of Vincent van Gogh’s artwork – through technology, theatrical storytelling, and world-class animation. To complement this spectacular on-site presentation, Lighthouse and Boulevard Arts have come together to create the Lighthouse Immersive app. The app offers visitors digital interactivities designed to augment, personalize, and extend each part of their experience. With exclusive looks into the history of individual paintings, augmented reality engagements, and cultural editorial content, visitors to Immersive Van Gogh can continue their exploration of the artist’s life and work long after they have left the venue.

Ratings and Reviews
Audio guide should be upgraded
I think the app was worth downloading prior to going. It has lots of good info. And the event was enjoyable. However the audio guide needs a couple improvements. The information in the audio guide was good and made for a nice enhancement of the experience. But I was disappointed that every time I wanted to take a picture it would pause the audio guide. And if I didn’t go back to it fast enough it would reload the app and reset where I had left off back to the beginning. In addition, when my screen automatically turned off, the audio guide would pause. This doesn’t happen with audiobooks and podcasts so I know it’s a doable fix. In the meantime, if you wish to listen to the audio guide do yourself a favor and turn off the auto lock in your display settings.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, mn88mouse. Thanks for taking the time to review the Lighthouse Immersive app. We are glad to hear you got a lot out of the rich content and activities. As to the audio guide - your feedback is very valuable and we are considering solutions that will increase usability. As you say - before any hard-coded solutions are implemented, recommending users turn off the auto screen lock before opening the audio guide is a great suggestion. Thank you again and we hope you return to the app for more info, resources, and activities on Lighthouse Immersive experiences that will continue to be added as new exhibits and locations open.
New version of the app is great!
This is packed with cool info and some interactive games to do at the venue or at home. Adds a lot to the overall experience, and I read that they will be constantly adding new content as they add more art and culture immersive experiences. Can’t wait!
Interesting and helpful
Lots of pre-visit info from parking to Van Gogh history. I went to St. Petersburg and Minneapolis showings.
