Overview

Just 30 minutes outside Paris and 25 minutes from Roissy-CDG Airport, listed on the additional inventory of the historical monuments since 1997, the Château d’Auvers-sur-Oise, property of Val d’Oise department, spread across eight hectares in the heart of the village, where Vincent van Gogh spent the remaining 70 days of his life. Since October 2017, offers from October 2017 a brand-new immersive scenography untitled « Vision Impressionniste », Impressionist vision. The exhibition shows what inspired the Impressionism and its legacy, the artists’ work and on the particular place of Auvers-sur-Oise. Dive into the impressionist painting! It is an immersive, emotional experience. For a really spectacular, unforgettable visit. Furthermore, for the first time, four rooms display the painting and litography collection of the Val d’Oise department. It is a great opportunity to admire major paintings (from Gustave Caillebotte, Claude Monet...).

This is a museum with very few impressionist paintings, but a great sense of the impressionist. Each room is covered with audio visual images of the great impressionist painters with quotes by them. You are surrounded by a visual and audio experience. The only negative...More

Dear Mr/Ms, We are sorry you did not enjoy your visit. The new project focuses on the Impressionist painting, its beginning and evolution towards Modern Art. The rooms are bare in order to increase the immersion effect. We are deeply concerned about the understanding and...More

As others have said this is a different chateau experience. Our experience might have been better if the audio guide had been more in sync with our tour. Good idea that needs some work. Too pricy to not see any real art. The Chateau is...More

A total surprise: this isn't a museum and there are no original paintings. Instead, you're taken on a tour of the places where Impressionism developed its character. You walk from room to room, each one representing a significant milieu for the movement: a Parisian street,...More

Building could be stunning but had a general untidiness which suggested some neglect, certainly from the outside. I can only comment on the outside as the place was shut, even though it was advertised as open- there were no signs up explaining the closure. Apparently...More

It was a beautiful sunny afternoon when we visited the Chateau d'Auvers. We didn't enter the Chateau(heard it's not worth paying the tickets to go in), however, we had a wonderful time just walking around and taking photos around the chateau. If you are visiting...More

Try and make a full day of this trip. Aim to get to the museum around 10.00 then have a leisurely walk around this 'time warp' which takes you through the centuries including 'Haussman's massive changes to Paris' as well as the naissant group of...More
