Van Gogh Heritage Foundation

The Van Gogh Heritage Foundation has established itself for the preservation and development of the Van Gogh heritage. The Foundation aims to stimulate social and economic significance through exhibitions and educational programmes in and around the Van Gogh Monuments. The story of the painter’s life and its relevance to present and future generations will form a central theme.

The Van Gogh Heritage Foundation is the organisation behind the Van Gogh Heritage Centres, Van Gogh Vastgoed NV and Van Gogh Brabant. The Foundation works in close cooperation with the European Van Gogh museums and heritage locations, under the common banner Van Gogh Europe.
