  • Spectacular immersive experience of sound and light. This is one of the most incredible places I have ever visited in my whole life. The scale of the show is perfect - you feel that you are in the paintings themselves or that you are the artist looking out over the rooftops you are painting. It is partially animated - they do subtle things like make snow fall, or night fall, or angels ascend, keeping the flavour of the original paintings and not Disneyfying it, while making it an experience that is filled with magic. Incredibly creative. An absolute must see and enjoyable for the whole family.
  • This is amazing, it's like a giant Cinema in a giant cave with moving images all over the surfaces, on the walls and on the floors. Unforgettable experience.
  • Must see when in the area, been going for the last 3 years, every year, to see the latest creation. Whether you are into art or not, it doesn't matter, the entire experience is a wonderful way to get to discover art, I will continue going for many more years to go. You will not regret a visit here.
  • A wonderful way to experience the paintings. Find a stone wall to sit down on and soak up the atmosphere. Also a great place to visit in summer to get a rest from the heat.
  • A stunning experience with the vast cool quarry space filled with images and sound. The animated additions to the Bosch and Brueghel paintings was very effective and really brought the works to life. The quality of the sound, in such a difficult echoey space, is fantastic.
