Vincent van Gogh
The Van Gogh House in Nieuw-Amsterdam is the only public accessible building in the Netherlands where the master painter has lived and worked. You can visit Van Gogh's room. His bed is still in the same place, his art supplies and paint are ready for use. It looks like Van Gogh left for a walk and may come back any time soon.
